Tenor Brian Cheney Will Present Ralph Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel on Stageit
This Thursday, 6/11, Tenor Brian Cheney with Pianist Cathy Venable will perform Ralph Vaughan Williams' song cycle, Songs of Travel at 7pm EDT on Stageit. The duo have performed the cycle together throughout the United States including their critically acclaimed recital at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2008.
Thursday marks Cheney's 11th consecutive weekly concert on Stageit, a successful online platform for artists to perform from their homes. Hailed by KUSC Los Angeles as the "next great tenor", this versatile singer has displayed his flexibility as a performing artist by offering programs from "Verdi & Puccini - Tenor Hits", "Musical Theatre Favorites", "Movie Musicals", to French and Italian Art Song all from his home studio in a full HD audio and video experience.
The Songs of Travel marks Cheney's first split screen performance with another artist. Cathy Venable, a versatile artist in her own right, is currently serving as Associate Conductor for the first National Tour of Frozen. She has held similar positions in National Tours such as The Phantom of the Opera and The Sound of Music. A classically trained pianist, Venable has served as Assistant Conductor and rehearsal pianist with companies such as Salt Marsh Opera and Light Opera Oklahoma as well as playing in numerous Broadway pits.
