Master class with Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs and Michael Recchiuti

This evening at 7:00 p.m., I will be accompanying a vocal master class given by soprano Elizabeth Blancke-Biggs and Maestro Michael Recchiuti at the National Opera Center, 330 7th Ave. NY, NY 10001. These are two of the most knowledgeable professionals in the opera business, not to mention great people with great senses of humor. It promises to be a good time for everybody. I know I’m looking forward to it!

You can watch it streamed live here.

Edited to add: now that the class is over, you can watch it on YouTube:

Part I – “Entweihte Götter!” from Wagner’s Lohengrin.

Part II – “Deh vieni, non tardar” from Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro.

Part III – “Amour! viens aider ma faiblesse!” from Saint-Saëns’ Samson et Dalila
