Opera baritone Chioldi in concert tonight at NSU

He'll be accompanied by his brother, a music professor on campus

TAHLEQUAH — Northeastern State University’s College of Liberal Arts and  Department of Music will present operatic baritone Michael Chioldi in concert tonight.

The first show of the 2013-14 NSU Chamber Music Series, it is set for 7 p.m. in the NSU Center for Performing Arts.

The performance offers something unique — for the first time, Chioldi will be accompanied by his brother, Dr. Ronald Chioldi, an accomplished artist and pianist and professor of music at NSU, making the event a Chioldi brothers concert.

Michael Chioldi has performed at nearly every major American opera house, including: The Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, New York City Opera, Washington National Opera and Los Angeles Opera. He has also traveled extensively in Japan with maestro Seiji Osawa and has appeared in Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Macau and Spain.

At Washington National Opera he appeared as Figaro in “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” — his first lead role after he completed his studies at the Houston Grand Opera Studio.

Tickets are available at the box office, starting at 6 p.m. Adult admission is $10, student admission is $5, and children 12 and younger are free.

This series is sponsored by a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
