American Bach Soloists
A BAROQUE NEW YEAR'S EVEAmerican Bach Soloists, Herbst Theatre, A BAROQUE NEW YEAR'S EVE. A special event titled "A Baroque New Year's Eve at the Opera" will be presented by American Bach Soloists (ABS) in San Francisco's beautiful Herbst Theatre - a cornerstone and jewel among the city's most prestigious venues - and will feature one of the opera world's exciting new vocal talents, countertenor Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen. The 2017 Metropolitan Opera National Young Artists Award Winner, former Merola Opera Program participant, 2018 San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow, and ABS Academy alumnus has been capturing the hearts of opera lovers around the world. The New York Times wrote that the young breakout artist "possesses a remarkable gift for intimate communication in a vast hall, combined with a voice of velvety gentleness - surprisingly penetrating given the tenderness of its texture - and a taste for adventure. ...Expressive yet dignified, his phrasing confident and his ornamentation stylishly discreet, he brought tears to my eyes." Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen will be featured in opera arias by Handel & Gluck. Joined by the incomparable soprano Mary Wilson, and along with a delightful program of instrumental music from opera and concert, this early night on the town will joyfully ring in the New Year in elegant style. The ABS period-instrument orchestra will be conducted by music director Jeffrey Thomas. One Performance Only.
