Michael Kelly in two nights of Hugo Wolf lieder

Michael Kelly as he appeared in the Barihunks Calendar
Former Barihunks calendar model Michael Kelly will be part of the two-night Hugo Wolf Project in New York City.

The program is part of the Brooklyn Art Song Society's multi-year survey of the complete songs of Hugo Wolf with all 51 settings from the Goethe-Lieder.  This songbook, the least performed of Wolf's works, features some of his most extended and ambitious songs (Prometheus, Der Sänger) and also features Wolf's unique, quirky brand of humor (Epiphanias, Frech und Froh I).  

Kelly will be joined by sopranos Kristina Bachrach and Sarah Brailey, tenors Dominic Armstrong and Nils Neubert, and fellow baritone Kyle Oliver.  Part one will be held at the Old Stone House as part of the new Art Song at the Old Stone House series, and part two will be a free concert at the Deutches Haus on the campus of New York University.  Tickets are available online.
