Simon Keenlyside baritone
David Greilsammer musical director
31 December 2023 – 7:30PM
American songs and tunes by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rogers & Oscar Hammerstein and others
Did you know that Simon Keenlyside, one of the world’s most charismatic and sought-after operatic baritones, has a side gig in songs from Broadway and West End musical comedies? You obviously haven’t listened to his CD, Something’s Gotta Give (2014), an album devoted to songs from musicals songs that require every bit as much attention to text and interpretation as lieder, and often the same mastery of vocal technique as operatic arias. Sir Simon manages to adapt his voice without any self-consciousness, and what comes across is a fabulous sense of lyrical line, a gorgeous creamy tone, acute characterization and superb diction, all the songs performed with a style and flair that is impossible to resist. For our New Year’s Eve gala, he is joined by David Greilsammer, another classical artist who loves to cross-over and who has proven time and time again his jazz talents on the keyboard, but who for the occasion will lead his Geneva Camerata in an evening full of the greatest hits and torch songs by the greatest on- and off-Broadway composers and a spectacular farewell to 2023.
