Headlining Metropolitan Opera soloist Anthony Roth Costanzo will teach a virtual master class at 4 p.m.
The class is free and open to everyone. To attend, click on the link posted on YSU’s website.
Costanzo performed virtually Wednesday evening.
He was Musical America’s 2019 Vocalist of the Year.
“As a countertenor, he has been called ‘vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless’ by The New York Times, ‘otherworldly’ by The Wall Street Journal and ‘a perfect musician’ by Le Monde,” said Phyllis Paul, dean of the YSU Cliffe College of Creative Arts. “Once you’ve watched his presentations, I think you’ll agree he’s all those things and more.”
Costanzo began performing at age 11. He’s appeared in opera, concert, recital, film and on Broadway.
His debut album was nominated for a Grammy in 2019.
