Baritones UnBound:Celebrating the UnCommon Voice of the Common Man
Marc Kudisch & Friends, NYC
In this brand new musical event conceived by Broadway leading man Marc Kudisch, three dynamite baritones take the stage to give us a captivating musical tour of the baritone voice throughout history. Veteran singers Jeff Mattsey and Ben Davis join Kudisch in an illuminating performance studded with classics from Broadway, opera and beyond. From Gregorian chants to well-known arias (“Ah! Per sempre,” “Largo”) including show tunes (“I am a Pirate King,” “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin”) and popular music (“It Was a Very Good Year,” “It’s Now or Never”, “Pretty Women”), Baritones UnBound: Celebrating the UnCommon Voice of the Common Man is a celebration of the baritone voice and its emergence as the revolutionary sound of the common man in one enchanted evening ringing with music, laughter and showmanship.
