Italian bass-baritone Luca Pisaroni returns to Koerner Hall, this time joined by his father-in-law, famed American baritone Thomas Hampson, to perform an evening of operatic arias and duets, as well as music by Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, and Franz Lehár, accompanied by pianist Vlad Iftinca. Hampson, America’s foremost baritone, “is without question one of the world’s greatest opera singers … a voice, a baritone so rich it can circle the universe” (Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America). He has received many honours and awards for his probing artistry and cultural leadership, and his discography includes winners of a Grammy Award, five Edison Awards, and the Grand Prix du Disque.
Please join us for a Pre-concert Talk at 7pm.
