What do Porgy, Hercules, and the Norse god Wotan have in common? They’ve all been portrayed by big-voiced American bass-baritone Eric Owens. A frequent star of the Metropolitan Opera, Owens is sharing the Hodgson Concert Hall stage Thurs., Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. with students from Philadelphia’s elite Curtis Institute, where he serves as director of vocal studies and the Curtis Opera Theatre. Tickets start at $25 and are $10 for UGA students; parking is free.
Joining Owens in this performance are student singers — soprano Sarah Fleiss, mezzo-soprano Lucy Baker, and tenor Joseph Tancredi — and pianists Miloš Repický and Ting Ting Wong.
The vocal quartet will perform gems from the art song repertoire, anchored by Brahms’s lilting and pensive Neue Liebeslieder waltzes for four voices and four-hand piano.
