The George London Foundation for Singers concludes its 2021-22 season of events with a recital by tenor Aaron Blake.
The recital will see the tenor accompanied by pianist Ken Noda at the Morgan Library & Museum’s Gilder Lehrman Hall on April 24, 2022.
The program will include songs by Bellini and Donizetti, followed by selections by Tosti, Strauss, and Liszt, and then songs by Copland, Porter, and Gershwin. There is one opera aria on the program: “Tombe degli avi miei” from Donizetti’s “Lucia di Lammermoor.”
Over the past few years, Blake has performed at the New York City Opera, Komische Oper Berlin, Metropolitan Opera, Oper Frankfurt, Cincinnati Opera, and The Dallas Opera. His repertoire includes the music of Mozart, Puccini, Donizetti, Bernstein, and Gregory Spears, among many others.
