A cover story in the current issue of Opera News praises Gerald Finley, one of the world’s most in-demand opera stars, for taking the time to develop an equally exciting career as a recital singer—a talent that will be on full display when Finley makes his Ravinia recital debut on Aug. 9, accompanied by Kevin Murphy. Finley will also give a free, public master class to participants in Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute, where Murphy is serving his first year as faculty director of the program for singers. Opera News proclaims, “[Gerald Finley's] voice itself is stunning—dark and rich in its lower reaches, yet capable of achieving a surprising degree of freedom on high. His technique allows him unforced access to his entire range, with tone that's consistently firm, smoothly emitted and well projected." Read the complete story here.
