What?!? Opera comes to The Velvet Note? Absolutely! In this two-night extravaganza, the music of celebrated opera/pop star Andrea Bocelli is performed under the stars at The Velvet Note by Opera Tenor Dr. Adam Kirkpatrick.
You don’t have to speak or even understand Italian to be soundly moved by this music and those whose voice carry the song. Also, you don’t have to drive downtown to hear these highly-trained voices accompanied by symphony orchestra instruments!
Dr. Adam Kirkpatrick, assistant professor of music at Kennesaw State University, has sung leading and secondary operatic roles and concerts professionally in many theaters throughout the United States, singing with the Cincinnati Opera, Atlanta Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Tri-Cities Opera (NY), Dayton Opera, Florida State Opera, Knoxville Symphony, Newton Symphony (Boston, MA), Tallahassee Symphony (FL), LaGrange Symphony (GA), Axtell Symphony (NE) and more.
Kirkpatrick holds a BM and MM in voice performance from the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and earned his Doctor of Music degree from Florida State University. Though he spends most of his professional life teaching voice and singing, Kirkpatrick also finds time to write and publish articles related to voice and singing.
