George London Foundation Recitals
Pairs of outstanding opera singers, many of whom have won a George London Award, perform in this annual series of recitals, now in its twenty-fourth year. A reception with the artists follows each recital.
Latonia Moore, soprano
Ryan Speedo Green, bass-baritone
Ken Noda, piano
Moore, a 2002 George London Award winner, received acclaim last fall for her performance in an English National Opera production of Porgy and Bess, with Anthony Tommasini writing in the New York Times, “Perhaps best of all is the impassioned, radiant soprano Latonia Moore as Serena.” Green won the George London Award in 2014 and the Marian Anderson Vocal Award in 2018. He appeared as the King in Aida at the Metropolitan Opera last season and was the subject of a recent profile on 60 Minutes. Works by Beethoven, Boito, Duparc, Hahn, Liszt, Mahler, Verdi, Wagner, and Wolf will be performed.
The exhibition Verdi: Creating Otello and Falstaff—Highlights from the Ricordi Archive will be open for concert attendees.
