"His vocal quality is stunning, with all the richness of a well-rounded baritone voice but with a striking brightness that thrills, particularly in his upper range."

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec hosts and curates an evening that includes selections from his exceptional body of vocal music, including his forthcoming opera The Shining. The opera, with a libretto by Mark Campbell, is set to have its world premiere with Minnesota Opera in May 2016. The evening's program also includes selections from Moravec's friends and colleagues James PrimoschChristopher Theofanidis, and Paola Prestini. Moravec's music has been described as “tuneful, ebullient and wonderfully energetic” (San Francisco Chronicle), “riveting and fascinating” (NPR), and “assured, virtuosic” (Wall Street Journal). NYFOS has premiered works by Moravec over the years, including commissioning the song cycle Parables in 2006, and is pleased to welcome a longtime friend to NYFOS Next.
