Barihunks Calendar model David Adam Moore to perform Schubert's Winterreise in Kansas

David Adam Moore from last year's calendar
We have no idea why we suddenly have so much barihunk news out of the American Midwest, but they seem to be descending among the cornfields like Schistocerca gregaria locusts. We recently posted about Michael Kelly and Dan Kempson performing in the area, now we've learned that David Adam Moore will be singing Schubert in Hesston, Kansas just 35 miles north of Wichita.

Moore, of course, has been a popular model in both our 2012 and 2013 Barihunks Charity Calendar.

David Adam Moore will be joining accompanist Earl Buys on December 2 at 3 p.m. at Hesston Mennonite Church on the Hesston College campus to present his multimedia seasonal concert of Franz Schubert’s song cycle Die Winterreise.

Die Winterreise is a setting of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller, performed in Schubert’s native German. Moore created a staging of Schubert’s masterwork with video projection, including English surtitles, as a way to help the audience visualize the very descriptive text.

David Adam Moore sings "Ego sum abbas" from Carmina Burana:

Moore is a graduate of the Oberlin (Ohio) College Conservatory of Music and the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. He was a participant in the Seattle Young Artists program before hitting it big on the world's greatest opera stages in Don Giovanni, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Billy Budd  and The Barber of Seville. We recently announced that Moore’s will star in Oklahoma! at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.

Moore will also conduct a master class with voice students from Hesston College and Bethel College, Dec. 3 at Hesston Mennonite Church. The class is free and open to the public. Single tickets for the David Adam Moore concert are available at the Hesston-Bethel Performing Arts Center website of by calling 620-327-8158 (Hesston College) or 316-284-5205 (Bethel College).

David Adam Moore is the May feature in our new charity calendar along with rising star Michael Hewitt. But it at Lulu:
