Clinton, NY – The Hamilton College Department of Music presents a recital by bass-baritone Carl DuPont on Friday, April 6, at 7:30 pm in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts.
DuPont, an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, presents an evening of art songs by black composers for bass and baritone voice. This performance brings rare and neglected works to the concert stage.
DuPont is a vocalist equally engaged in teaching, performing, and research. He made his first operatic appearance as a boy soprano in the title role of Amahl and the Night Visitors in his hometown of Daytona Beach, FL, and has been singing ever since. Lately, he has been celebrated for his “dramatic, dark tones” (South Florida Classical Review) on stage as Leporello in Don Giovanni, the title character in Dennis Rodman in North Korea, and Jim in Porgy and Bess at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City. He has performed as a soloist with the Winston Salem Symphony, Rochester Oratorio Society, Southwest Florida Symphony, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
This concert is free and open to the public. All seats are general admission. For more information, call the box office at (315) 859-4331 or visit http://www.hamilton.edu/performingarts.
