ModMusic: Dennis Blackwell

Regular visitors to ModFab are already familiar with our favorite singer in NYC, Dennis Blackwell, whose smooth-as-honey baritone has been put to great use in classical venues (New York City Opera), musical theatre (City Center Encores), as a soloist (Stonewall Chorale) and across the country. This week sees Dennis at the Great Music at St. Bartholomew's series. Accompanied by the superb pianist Elizabeth Hastings and featuring special guest mezzo-soprano Jessica Bowers, he'll be performing works by Handel, Rossini, Haydn, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and more.

Dennis' website now features some new recordings in his download section, and we're thrilled to preview one of them here: "Night," a gorgeous song by African-American female composer Florence Price. And just because we think it's unbelievable, we're also including "Simple Song," from Leonard Bernstein's Mass. It's enough to make you start believing in God again.

Download: "Night" and "Simple Song"
Then See: Tuesday, May 16th, 2006 - 7:30pm
Great Music at St. Bartholmew's Church, 109 E. 50th Street, NYC
