Michael Hewitt
The always entertaining and extremely talented barihunk Michael Hewitt is performance his graduate recital on Monday, May 4th at the University of Denver's Hamilton Recital Hall a 7:30 PM. The concert is free and open to the public.

He'll be accompanied at the piano by Mallory Bernstein in a program of love, love lost, and wandering. Hewitt will perform music by Franz Liszt, Maurice Ravel, Franz Schubert, Rodgers & Hammerstein II, Lerner & Loewe, Head, Merrill, Tosti, and Ralph Vaughan-Williams.

During his time at the Lamont School of Music, he performed Emile de Becque in "South Pacific", Rev. Olin Blitch in Carlisle Floyd’s “Susannah,” Jud Fry in “Oklahoma!,” and the title role in Mozart's Don Giovanni. He is an alumnus of the 2014 Houston Grand Opera Young Artist Vocal Academy and of Seagle Music Colony (where he was part of our group barihunks shoot).

On May 21 and 22, he'll sing the role of Mordecai in Oscar Sladek's "Far Beyond Rubies" at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. The musical tells the story of Esther and Mordecai imagined as a great love story set against the turmoil and intrigue of Ancient Persia. On May 28th, he'll be the bass soloist in Beethoven's 9th Symphony with the Lamont Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
