Dear Maury,

I thought your readers would be interested in an upcoming concert at New York's Carnegie Hall. On April 8th, rising opera star Liam Bonner and Carnegie Mellon Philharmonic will perform a New York premiere of Jacob Druckman’s “Demos” (1992).

The program of contemporary and Post-Romantic masterworks will also feature Mahler's "Lieder eines Farhrende Gesellen” and will close with Stravinsky's vibrant and fanciful "Petrouchka."
 Maestro Ronald Zollman will lead Bonner and the Carnegie Mellon Philharmonic, the flagship ensemble of Carnegie Mellon’s School of Music, in concert.

Opera News heralded Bonner, a Carnegie Mellon School of Music alumnus, for his "rich, versatile voice" and "beautiful instrument." The Washington Times said the rising baritone possesses a "deft comic touch backed by a hefty, well-supported instrument that would make for a wonderful Figaro."

Bonner recently made his Metropolitan Opera debut as Morales in "Carmen" and will join the company for its production of "Hamlet." He will make his role and company debut as Dottore Malatesta in "Don Pasquale" with Opera New Jersey.

In the 2008-09 season, Bonner made his European operatic debut as Guglielmo in "Così fan tutte" at English National Opera, returned to Houston Grand Opera for Claudio in "Béatrice et Bénédict" and Demetrius in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and appeared in a gala concert with L'Opéra de Québec.
