Cast Change: Michael Kelly steps into Winterreise

Michael Kelly
One of our favorite young baritones (and former tenor) Michael Kelly will replace Sanford Sylvan in "Winterreise" for Schubert & Co. next weekend. Kelly will be accompanied by Jonathan Ware at the piano.  The performance will be on Saturday, January 26 at the Central Presbyterian Church in New York City. We'd pay anything to hear Michael Kelly in this music, so the best thing about this concert is that it's free. 

If you can't wait until next weekend, Kelly will join fellow barihunk Jesse Blumberg this Sunday, January 20 in Schubert songs by Goethe. The duo will be joined by soprano Simone Easthope, soprano Raquel Gonzalez, mezzo Jazmina MacNeil and tenor Spencer Lang. The concert is also at the Central Presbyterian Church in New York City. Pianists Jonathan Ware and Malcolm Martineau will perform.

Schubert & Co. is a group of artists committed to furthering the art of song. Theyare  presenting the complete solo lieder of Franz Schubert in New York City in a series of recitals spanning from September 2012 to May 2013.

Jesse Blumberg
Fans of Jesse Blumberg on the opposite coast can see him on Tuesday, February 19th in San Francisco, where he'll perform in the West Coast premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon's "Green Sneakers." Tickets are available online.
