Mark S. Doss & Reed Tetzloff at the Truman School
21 MAY 2018
Event by Impromptu Classical Music Recital Series, The Drozdoff Society
Duration: 50 min
Operatic Grammy Award winning bass-baritone Mark Steven Doss concert pianist Reed Tetzloff travel with The Drozdoff Society's Impromptu Classical Music Recital Series to New Haven to spend a day with children enrolled the Truman School, where Mr. Jeff Jones teaches The Truman Band, which consists of the talented and enthusiastic group of young instrumentalists who represent the upper grades of Truman School, a preK-8 school in the New Haven Public School (NHPS) District.
Mr. Doss is wonderful with children, and not only sings for them (and perhaps even with them, we shall see!), but demonstrates the enormous physicality of the opera singer's life. He does juggling, hula-hooping, yoga, tai-chi, and the rest...well...we will simply have to show up and watch.
The young American pianist, Reed Tetzloff, has distinguished himself one of the brightest stars of a new generation of musicians. He enthralls audiences with his “magical tone” (The Cincinnati Enquirer) and “ebullient” virtuosity (Gramophone Magazine). He performed at Lyric Hall Theater in Impromptu Classical Music Recital Series' 2016-2017 season, and is one of the two pianists accompanying Mr. Doss on this multi-state tour, with a solo recital in New Jersey on May 19th.
This engagement was arranged in collaboration with David Perry, Executive Director and Founder of The Second Movement, Jeff Jones of the New Haven Public School District, and The Drozdoff Society at Lyric Hall Theater of New Haven.
Mr. Doss is an Residence of The Drozdoff Society.
