Devin returns in guest recital
The Lincoln Trail College Music Department will present Robinson native Zachary Devin in a guest artist recital at 7 p.m. May 31 in the Zwermann Arts Center Theater.
Tenor Zachary Devin’s voice has been praised as “superb,” “strong” and “impassioned” by Opera Today.
After receiving degrees in music from Millikin University and the prestigious Rice University, he traveled to London where he studied at the famous Royal Academy of Music.
Devin made his London stage debut as Jupiter in Hampstead Garden Opera’s production of Handel’s “Semele” and, in June 2012, he made his European debut in Budapest as Peter Quint in Britten’s “Turn of the Screw.”
After two years of performing overseas, he has returned to the United States and has quickly become a prominent figure in the St. Louis music scene, appearing with Winter Opera St. Louis, Union Avenue Opera, and the St. Louis Symphony Chorus.
The recital will feature a wide variety of pieces including art songs, famous opera arias and musical theater. Highlights include “Bring Him Home” from “Les Misérables,” “Lonely House” from “Street Scene,” and numbers from “Don Giovanni” and “The Elixir of Love.”
Freewill donations will be accepted at the door. For more information, call the Performing Arts Office at (618) 544-8657, ext. 1433.
