ABOUT THE ARTISTS:



Lyric baritone Michael Weyandt continues to engage audiences with his "virile, ardent" singing and "notable characterizations" in an increasingly diverse repertoire. Mr. Weyandt's recently appeared in the North American premiere of Handel's first opera, Almira, with Operamission in New York City, described by Anthony Tommasini of The New York Times as "movingly performed". He also sang debuts with Bourbon Baroque in Rameau's Les Sauvages and with the new music vocal ensemble Ekmeles in a premiere by New York composer Randy Gibson, and won the Art Song Preservation Society of New York's Mary Trueman Vocal Arts Competition.



Thomas Muraco has earned such accolades through a combination of technical virtuosity, tonal beauty, and a unique understanding of the underlying poetry of music. His performances in major concert halls throughout the United States, Canada, Central America, Europe, and Asia reflect his command of a repertoire remarkable for its complete range of musical styles, periods and forms. He has been praised for his insightful interpretations of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin, Brahms, Wolf, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Poulenc, and premieres of William Schuman and George Perle. Mr. Muraco has partnered among others such singers as Adele Addison, John Aler, Martina Arroyo, Arleen Augér, John Cheek, Phyllis Curtin, Mary Dunleavy, Faith Esham, Maureen Forrester, Denyce Graves, Ben Heppner, Henry Herford, Ying Huang, Sumi Jo, Chris Merritt, Roberta Peters, Hermann Prey, Twyla Robinson, Jennie Tourel, Benita Valente and Dolora Zajick.
