Where

Tobias Greenhalgh (international rising star of opera and recital) and Binghamton University Assistant Professor Joel Harder (acclaimed collaborative pianist) join forces for a recital of Schubert's late masterpiece, "Winterreise" (Winter's Journey) at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22 in Watters Theater at Binghamton University. In late February of 1827, one year before his death, Franz Schubert wrote this invitation to a good friend: "Come to Schober's today, and I will sing you a cycle of spine-chilling songs. I am anxious to know what you will say about them. They have affected me more than any lieder I have ever written..." Experience a dark odyssey of the heart and soul, and immerse yourself in this monumental and unforgettable art song cycle through Schubert's most treasured, enigmatic songs “Winterreise”.

Baritone TOBIAS GREENHALGH is a versatile singer on the rise, whom Opera News recently claimed was "so clearly headed for success.” This season, he sings his first performances of Don Giovanni with both Virginia Opera and Baltimore Concert Opera. He also sings his first performances of Dr. Malatesta in Don Pasquale with Opéra national de Montpellier, returns to Palm Beach Opera for Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, and sings Tom Joad in The Grapes of Wrath with Michigan Opera Theatre. Additionally, he will sing a recital at the National Forum of Music in Wroclaw, Poland, and will make his Barbican Centre Debut in a newly commissioned piece by Joby Talbot. Last season, he joined the Glyndebourne Opera Tour for performances of Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence for the title role in Dido and Aeneas, and Theater an der Wien for Cecil in Maria Stuarda and Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. He also returned to Palm Beach Opera as Maximilian in Candide, joined the Grand Teton Music Festival for performances of Riff in West Side Story, and made two Carnegie Hall debuts singing Smyth’s The Prison with the Cecilia Chorus of New York along with a recital at Weil Recital Hall. Mr. Greenhalgh is a graduate of The Juilliard School, from which he earned both his Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees. He is a first place winner of the 2013 Liederkranz Competition in the opera divison. In past seasons, his other competition wins included grand prize in the Metropolitan International Music Festival Competition, first place in the Mario Lanza Competition, second place in the Oratorio Society of New York Competition and third place in the Gerda Lissner Competition. Additionally, he is the co-creator of Operation Superpower, a superhero opera for kids that promotes an anti-bullying stance from early school years.
