  • Simon Keenlyside - Schubert, Standchen

This event has passed.

The eloquent baritone Simon Keenlyside brings his “singular gifts” (Opera News) as a Lieder interpreter to an evening of art song. The London-born Keenlyside’s program will showcase his unforced directness and astonishingly lithe, expressive voice—floating ethereally one moment, bellowing with focused power the next. Keenlyside and longtime collaborator Malcolm Martineau are very much a partnership of equals. Be sure to experience how they respond to each other’s insights with effortless elegance.
