About This Event

Grammy Award-winning Canadian baritone “[Gerald] Finley possesses a warm, glowing baritone with a generous low range and silken top notes, as well as a knack for spinning out long and smooth legato lines. But just as important, he is an intelligent and committed actor.” (The New York Times)
