Randal Turner Sings Glen Roven

(L-R) Randal Turner with Allen Perriello at his West Coast recital debut in San Francisco; Performing an aria from Ricky Ian Gordon's "The Grapes of Wrath" at the Festival Opera gala in Berkeley
Randal Turner took San Francisco by storm during his West Coast recital debut on December 6th. The Swiss-based American baritone sang and entire program of music by living American composers. In addition to Roven, the evening included works by Jake Heggie, Ricky Ian Gordon, Clint Borzoni, Julia Schwartz and a very special encore (more on that in a future post). 

The performance has been recorded and will be released in January 2011. Here is a teaser of him singing Glen Roven's beautiful song "When You Are Old."

Americans will get one last chance to hear the singer this year before he returns to Europe. He will be performing Handel's Messiah with the Indianapolis Symphony on Saturday, December 18th.
