Local opera singer in NYC
Local operatic soprano Amy Irvine Palomo and world-renowned pianist Mikhail Hallak are teaming up to present a concert of French chansons in New York City. Celebrated by blogger Andrew Macbeth as "Inspiring. Bold and passionate," you don't want to miss this thrilling operatic concert, as it will be the first stride across the boards for a full-length solo concert since the tragic death of Irvine Palomo's husband in 2011. Located just down the street from the Metropolitan Opera at 10 W. 64th Street, the performance in Marjorie S. Deane Hall is part of a recital series entitled "Voyages," exploring the more exotic side of classical singing repertoire. At 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, experience a loaded hour of sophisticated yet raw, vulnerable, and stunningly romantic music. Interlaced with subtle humor, hope, devastation, love and its carnal cousin, there is something for everyone in this all-French voyage. Every word is clearly translated and provided to the audience, brought to its own magical life in the human voice. Voyages. This is no round-trip.
