This coming Sunday, you can hear mezzo-soprano Daryl Freedman, one of the new Portland Opera Studio Artists, in a recital at Sherman Cllay Pianos in the Pearl District. I really liked Freedman's voice at the Stars of La Boheme concert a few weeks ago; so this recital promises to be very good.
Here are the details:
WHEN: 7:00pm, Sunday, October 4, 2009.
WHERE: Sherman Clay Pianos | 131 NW 13th Ave.
Recommended donation to support the Portland Opera Studio Artist program: $10.
Portland Opera's chorus master and assistant conductor, Robert Ainsley, will accompany Freedman.
Here is a brief bio of Freedman from the press release:
