Honest Brook Music Festival will host two more concerts for the summer season.
Baritone Thomas Meglioranza will make his second appearance at Honest Brook with pianist Reiko Uchida at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4.
In 2017 they presented Schubert’s song cycle “Winterreise” with English surtitles. They will perform Schubert’s other song cycle “Die Schone Mullerin” along with other works. Meglioranza’s operatic roles include Fritz in Korngold’s “Die Tote Stadt,” the lead in Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” and Count Almaviva in “The Marriage of Figaro” as well as Chou En-lai in Adams’ “Nixon in China” and Prior Walter in Peter Eotvos’ “Angels in America.” Uchida made her New York solo debut at Carnegie’s Weill Hall in 2001. She has since performed around the world. In the U.S. she has been heard at Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the 92nd Street Y, the Metropolitan Museum, the Kennedy Center and the White House.
Honest Brook’s final concert of the season will be at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11, featuring violinist Randall Goosby. He first performed as a soloist with orchestra at 9 with the Jacksonville Symphony. At 13, he performed with the New York Philharmonic on a Young People’s Concert at Avery Fisher Hall. He won first prize in the 2018 Young Concert Artists International Auditions as well as the Buffalo Chamber Music Society Prize, Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle Prize, Harriman-Jewell Series Prize, Vancouver Society Prize among others including the Sander Buchman Prize, which provides major support for his New York debut.
