Tenor Brendan Tuohy to give vocal recital

Tenor Brendan Tuohy will sing works by Mozart, Franz, Schubert, Dvořák, Hugo Wolf and Ralph Vaughan Williams this evening at Sherman Clay Pianos (131 NW 13th Ave.) at 7 pm. Tuohy is a member of the Portland Opera Studio program and he will be accompanied by Robert Ainsley, who is the Portland Opera chorus master and assistant conductor. The concert is free but donations are accepted.

Tuohy is one of the finest young tenors I have ever heard in Portland, and he will be moving to Houston to sing in the young artists program at Houston Grand Opera. That's where local diva Angela Niederloh also studied and got to sing with Renée Fleming. So, we will keep an eye on Tuohy's career and wish him the best of luck!

I wish he had sung the Tenor lead in Rigoletto this week! Brendan has wonderful high notes. He really could have sung those arias!
