Two dazzling singers share one harmonious musical friendship. Tenor Lawrence Brownlee and bass-baritone Eric Owens—two of opera’s most acclaimed voices—come together for a recital of arias and spirituals that will highlight their individual talents and combined brilliance. Each has performed on the most prestigious opera stages, and their performance on the Hancher stage will be extraordinary.
