The Furman University music department will present an opera scenes recital Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall on the Furman campus.

The recital, “An Evening of Opera in English,” is free and open to the public, and includes excerpts from operas by Britten, Corigliano, Adamo, Sullivan, and Menotti.

The performance is directed by Furman professor of voice and director of lyric theatre, Grant Knox. Performing the scenes are students in Knox’s Opera Workshop. They are accompanied by Furman piano professor David Gross.

Knox joined the Furman music faculty in 2013. An American tenor, Knox enjoys a varied career in opera, musical theater, concert and recital. He has appeared with the Cincinnati Opera, Atlanta Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, and Chautauqua Opera, among others.

Equally versed in concert repertoire, Knox has performed with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Illinois Philharmonic, Cobb Symphony, Binghamton Philharmonic, and others, and has appeared in recital at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

As a recording artist, Knox can be heard on the complete cast recordings of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Grand Duke” and “The Sorcerer,” Offenbach’s “The Brigands,” Romberg’s “Maytime,” and Kalman’s “The Carnival Fairy,” all released on the Albany Records label. Knox holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and a doctorate from Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music.

For more information about the recital, call the Furman Music Office at 864-294-2086.
