Michael Fabiano in Recital
January 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Michael Fabiano’s breakthrough year was 2014 when he won both the Beverly Sills Artist Award and the Richard Tucker Award – no other singer has ever won both those awards in the same season. Four years later, he is one of the world’s leading tenors, in demand at opera houses all over the world – from Sydney, Australia to Zurich, Switzerland, from Houston and San Francisco to Chicago and New York’s Metropolitan Opera, which is his “home house”. A Jersey boy, born in Morris County, Michael prizes the ability to stay close to his roots, which is one of the considerations that made him found ArtSmart, a non-profit organization that provides free voice lessons to students in public schools in under-served neighborhoods throughout the country. Started in Newark, N.J. in 2016, it is now also operating in San Francisco and Philadelphia. ArtSmart will be a beneficiary of Michael’s recital for Music in the Somerset Hillson Friday, January 4 in Pottersville.
