A program featuring one half of opera arias by Mozart, Donizetti, Verdi, and Bizet and one half of traditional spirituals, American popular songs, and gospel favorites.
Two of today’s most sought-after vocalists unite for an evening of unforgettable music-making. Philadelphia native and opera superstar Eric Owens “speaks to you even in his silences… and shakes you when he sings” (Chicago Sun-Times) while Lawrence Brownlee—recently named “Male Singer of the Year” by the International Opera Awards—is indisputably one of the world’s leading bel canto tenors.
