Erin Wall, soprano
Steven LaBrie, baritone*
Spencer Myer, piano
Pairs of stellar opera singers, many of whom were winners of a George London prize early in their careers, or recent George London Award recipients, perform in this annual series of recitals. This season we celebrate a twenty year partnership between the George London Foundation and the Morgan with a special anniversary concert. A reception with the artists follows each recital.
Erin Wall in 2014–15 performed her signature role, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, at the Bayerische Staatsoper and Seattle Opera, where the Seattle Times praised her “resplendent soprano.” In 2015–16 Steven LaBrie will be making his debut at Lyric Opera Baltimore as Figaro, in their production of Il barbiere di Siviglia; last season, he reprised the role of Schaunard in La bohème for both his return to the Dallas Opera and his debut with the Washington National Opera.
They will be preforming works by Korngold, Stravinsky, Lehar, and a selection of Mexican Ballads.
