I was interviewed by Wicked Local about the upcoming Opera 101 classes at Rockport’s Shailin Liu Performance Center. You can read the article here or below.
As part of Rockport Music’s Community Concerts and Events program, I will be teaching an Opera 101 course at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. It will be a 4-night class designed to lead to a deeper knowledge and appreciation of opera throughout the centuries. This series will be part-lecture-part performance with performances by young professional opera singers and New England Conservatory students. We will be tracing opera from Monteverdi to Wagner and Verdi, full details are below. You can purchase tickets for individual dates or the whole series here
Come join me for a lecture/recital on April 7th at 7 p.m. at the beautiful Shalin Liu Concert Hall! There will be a lecture on Aaron Copland and his contribution to American Music and then afterward students from The Boston Conservatory will perform the original 13-instrument version of his Pulitzer Prize winning composition Appalachian Spring, conducted by Maestro Russell Ger.
It is free and open to the public! First come first served. I hope to see you there.
Join me for Wednesday Evening in Rockport when I discuss Wagner’s Music Dramas. It is a free lecture at the Shailin Liu concert hall and a great way to get geared up for the HD Broadcasts of The Ring!
