Joy In Singing's mission is art song and this year two gifted recitalists are presented at the 2015 Artist Award Debut Recital.
Tickets to this year's event include the post concert reception on the main balcony level.
Steven Eddy is praised for his “polished baritone and acting skills” and “sterling musical work”. He has performed with Fort Worth Opera, Aspen Music Festival, SongFest, and the Tanglewood Music Center. As an interpreter of works in the art song repertory, he has collaborated on recitals and in masterclasses with Graham Johnson, Rudolf Piernay, Jake Heggie, John Musto, Sanford Sylvan, Stephanie Blythe, Alan Smith, and Håkan Hagegård. At University of Michigan, Mr. Eddy worked closely with collaborative pianist Martin Katz and performed Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen with the University Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Eddy will be assisted by pianist Dimitri Dover.

Samuel Barber: Mélodies passagères
Songs by J. Brahms, C. Schumann, Jake Heggie, Saint-Saëns, Dvorak, Respighi
Transylanian-American soprano Lilla Heinrich Szász has won critical and international acclaim for her “appealing sound, agile coloratura and oversize wit.” A Juilliard graduate, she made her Carnegie Hall debut with the Marilyn Horne Foundation's "The Song Continues" program. Ms. Szász performed with Opera St. Louis during the 2015 festival season and has also been seen with the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra, the Israeli Chamber Orchestra, and NYC FOCUS!
