Ordway Concert Hall

We are sorry to announce that baritone Samuel Hasselhorn has had to cancel his November 29 & December 1, 2018 Schubert Club engagements due to unforeseen professional and personal circumstances. We try to avoid artist changes whenever possible, but we thank you for understanding when these occasions do arise. Though disappointed by this news, we are delighted to announce that English baritone Christopher Maltman and pianist Audrey Saint-Gil will perform a program titled “Carnival of the Animals” in his place.

A globally-renowned Don Giovanni, Christopher Maltman has sung the role in London, Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Salzburg, Amsterdam, Toulouse, San Sebastian, Beijing and Chicago, and adds New York and Edinburgh this year. He is singing the lead in Nico Mulhy’s new opera “Marnie” opposite Isabel Leonard at the Met this coming fall. He won the Lieder prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World early in his career and has continued to delight audiences with his sensitive and engaging song performances, many of which are documented in acclaimed recordings. His Schubert Club song recital, “Carnival of the Animals,” will feature works by Poulenc, Schumann, Ravel, Reger, Chabrier, Wolf, and Flanders and Swann.

Please join us one hour prior to the performance for a pre-concert talk led by Mark Bilyeu.
