Mark Stone at Carnegie Hall

We love promoting American composers on this site and were thrilled that Jake Heggie's "Moby Dick" at Dallas Opera has received universal critical acclaim. We're still hoping a John Adams opera will make the site someday, as he is one of the true American masters. We've featured posts on operas and vocal music from Mark Adamo, Ricky Ian Gordon, Leonard Bernstein, Tobias Picker, Lerner & Loewe, Carlisle Floyd, Glen Roven and Andre Previn.

So we were thrilled to learn that the May 19 concert at Carnegie Hall singing the music of 4-time Emmy Award winning composer Glen Roven is almost completely sold out. We hear that there are only a handful of tickets, so click HERE to order.

One of the things that this site is dedicated to is keeping the operatic art forum fresh, exciting and current. We believe that opera needs to compete with television and the movies to survive. The works by our great living composers does much to foster that goal. Please keep us informed of any new works that haven't appeared on this site by sending an email to, especially if they include a barihunk!

  1. One of the pieces on the recital is a setting of Michael Tolliver's coming out letter to his mother from the (More?) Tales of the City book by Armistead Maupin.

  2. We had a preview of Mark singing Glen's music in Philadelphia: thrilling and unforgettable experience. Mark, BTW, is finishing a run as Germont, after competing in a more literal run, on May 2, the Broad Street Run:
