Please join us Saturday, April 22 at 7 p.m., for a FREE tribute concert celebrating Bulgarian operatic baritone and vocal coach Roman Borgman (May 18, 1953 - April 8, 2016).
Six professional singers will perform operatic arias, duets and ensembles in remembrance of their colleague and mentor. The program will run approximately 90 minutes.
Tickets are free, but seating is limited. Please click the green "Register" button on the upper right side of this page or visit http://www.facebook.com/rbopera to secure a ticket.
“Roman had a fondness for vocalists and their gift of singing,” said his wife, Founder and Artistic Director Maryann Mootos. “He enjoyed working with each one of them.”
Soprano Christina Rohm performed concerts and opera highlights programs with Borgman for more than three years. “He deeply recognized, affirmed, enhanced, encouraged, and celebrated the beauty and uniqueness in each singer,” said Rohm.
Scott Lefurgy, a baritone at home on the concert and operatic stages as well as in the classroom, teaches Biochemistry at Hofstra University where he often sings for his students. “I observed Roman's dedication, passion, and knowledge of opera and singing,” Lefurgy said, “but perhaps even more impressive was the dedication to Roman that I saw in his students and the opera-loving community he built.”
“Roman gave of himself freely so that I might be able to find myself,” said Borgman’s voice student, bass Nathan Baer. “I miss Roman dearly and thank him, thank him, thank him.”
“He took to heart our successes and failures and was more than a teacher, but a good friend,” said mezzo-soprano Jodi Karem who sings throughout the United States and Europe.
The evening also features Italian tenor Paolo Buffagni who made his New York City debut at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center in 2006.
New York-based Mark Cogley provides piano accompaniment.
