World-renown husband and wife duo are bringing their talents and expertise to the University of Mary for an evening concert the public won't want to miss.
The University of Mary is proud to present the operatic sounds of Helen Tintes-Schuermann, mezzo-soprano and Klaus Schuermann, bass-baritone as they perform "America Meets Austria" concert Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, at 7 p.m., in R.M. Heskett Hall at the Clairmont Center for Performing Arts building on campus.
This is an encore performance for Tintes-Schuermann, stated Katherine Henjum, director of vocal studies at the University of Mary. Tintes-Schuermann last performed at the University of Mary in 2010 and is back by popular demand this time appearing with her husband.
"We are so pleased to have Helen back and to have Klaus join us in an evening of song by a variety of composers including Schubert, Brahms, Mahler, Ives and Libby Larson," added Henjum. "It is always a great opportunity for the students to interact with quality performers and absorb what these artists offer through poetry, art, or song. They learn from the artists by watching them in action, visiting about the profession, the business and at times being taught by them in a master class situation."
The two are active concert artists touring nationally and internationally and are featured together on a recent CD entitled "These Precious Days," a potpourri recording of international popular tunes.
This concert is free and open to the public. For more information please contact the University of Mary Music Department at (701) 355-8301 or e-mail [email protected]
