His music is maddening, wonderful, hypnotic, or repulsive. It depends on who you ask.

One of the greatest pleasures in my life is presenting music for you on Classical 91.5 FM.  But making music with other people offers a different kind of thrill, and this spring I’m loving the chance to sing with various chamber choirs, including Madrigalia and First Inversion. 

My last musical adventure plunged me into the pit.

The Concordia Choir is swinging through Rochester on a national tour later this month.  In this conversation with conductor and composer Dr. René Clausen, you'll hear about a wide range of topics related to singing, managing, and listening -- plus a lesson in how to breathe more deeply.

There are bad relationships and there are Bad Relationships.  The MacBeths of Shakepeare's "Scottish Play" push the boundaries of evil, to say the least. This summer bass-baritone Eric Owens made his debut as the title character of Verdi's Shakespearean opera, with Melody Moore as his scheming wife.  During the Glimmerglass Festival, we sat down to talk about twisted love, ambition, treachery, murder, and the House of Cards.
