Otello in Jacksonville

The Jacksonville Symphony has been good to me. Last season I sang Colline as well as the bass solo in Beethoven’s great 9th Symphony. Not only is it a fantastic orchestra, but they treat their artists so well. Naturally, I’m always looking forward to returning there for a pleasant stay and top-notch musical experience. When it also involves working on one of the masterpieces of one of the greatest men ever to leave his mark on the world of opera, I’d say it appropriate to consider myself….. WINNING!
I will be singing Lodovico in Otello by Giuseppe Verdi. I’m particularly honored to take part in this production as it will be the last opera Maestro Fabio Mechetti conducts before stepping down from his many years as Artistic Director of the Orchestra. Apparently it is his favorite opera and he has chosen it as his last production there.
I am so looking forward to working with a fantastic cast of singers in this show.
