Get up close and personal with Sherill Milnes
Join world-renowned operatic baritone and Opera Tampa artistic advisor Sherill Milnes next weekend as he leads opera singers through a master class at the Patel Conservatory.
The class, open to the public for observation, gives the audience a rare opportunity to watch singers perform and be guided by Milnes as he shares his experience and knowledge with the performers. The five performers were selected through auditions around the world in early October.
Winner of three Grammy® awards, Milnes is internationally recognized as the leading Verdi Baritone of his time. He performed in every great opera hall in the world, such as La Scala in Milan and Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, and performed for every United States president since Gerald Ford. His remarkable voice, artistic integrity, commanding stage presence and rugged looks made him a favorite for all audiences.
Teaching young singers has been a passion for Milnes, who has led master classes at the Julliard and Manhattan Schools in New York and at many major universities throughout the country. He’s taught more extensively at the Yale University School of Music and other universities internationally.
Come enjoy the amazing talent of vocal artists next Friday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the TECO Theater. Tickets are free for season subscribers and $15 for non-subscribers. Call 229-STAR, or visit our website.
