This event is free, but by invitation only. Please contact me directly for further information.
Having earned a First Place award in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Eastern Region Finals, I have become a National Semi-Finalist. That means that I will perform on the Metropolitan Opera stage for a chance to sing in the Grand Finals.
I am proud and honored to sing in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Eastern Region Finals. Come cheer me on as I compete for a spot in the Semi-Finals. Tickets are required and available at:
I join a stellar cast and the New York Festival of Song for a recital of protest songs.
From the NYFOS website: "Music has long been a source of comfort and courage for oppressed communities. [...] A panorama of composers, from Marc Blitzstein and Joni Mitchell to Randy Newman and Mohammed Fairouz, take an eloquent stand for equality, peace, and rationality. A complimentary wine reception with the artists will follow the program."
Featuring works by Debussy, Schubert, Vaughan Williams, and others.
Location: Morse Hall at the Juilliard School. Enter at Juilliard's main entrance on 65th and take the elevator to Street Level.
I sing the role of Masetto in a scene from Mozart's Don Giovanni. Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director designate of the Metropolitan Opera, will coach the ensemble. The masterclass will be live-streamed at Juilliard Live and medici.tv; it will be posted to medici.tv and Juilliard's YouTube channel shortly thereafter.
I join Chris Reynolds, pianist, for part 1 of his graduation recital diptych. Alongside a fantastic ensemble, we embark on a wrenching musical journey through the horror of World War II and the hope for a better world.
