|Andrew Garland in Hawaii|
We recently posted about Andrew Garland's performances in Pagliacci and Carmina Burana with Hawaii Opera. We were fortunate enough to get a picture of the Massachusetts native in his Barihunks tee shirt as he set off to hit the waves.
We also wanted to celebrate his birthday today, as he is one of our favorite singers on the scene today. His CD of American songs on GPR Records with pianist Donna Loewy remains one of our favorite baritone recitals.
He'll be returning to his homestate on Friday, May 16 for a Celebrity Benefit Concert at Plymouth's Spire Center for Performing Arts with accompanist Warren Jones.
Andrew Garland launched his career as a student in Kingston, Massachusetts. He has been heard in opera performances and concert halls across the country, including appearances at Boston Lyric Opera, Chorus Pro Musica, Hawaii Opera Theatre, Seattle Opera, Knoxville Opera, Colorado Bach Ensemble, Boston Baroque, New York City Opera and more.
Tickets for the Celebrity Benefit Concert are $40 and are available online or by calling (508) 746-4488.
