CCM welcomes alumnus David Daniels (BM, 1990) back to campus for a master class from 3–5 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 28, in UC’s Robert J. Werner Recital Hall. This master class is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.

Daniels made history as the first countertenor to give a solo recital in the main auditorium of Carnegie Hall. As previously reported, he was also named a 2012 Opera News Awards recipient by the editors of Opera News magazine. These awards, which will be handed out on Sunday, April 12 at The Plaza in New York, are given to artists who have made an invaluable contribution to opera.

The Chicago Tribune has called Daniels “today’s gold standard among countertenors.” Gramophone magazine acknowledged his contribution to recorded excellence as well as his expansion of the repertoire for his voice type by naming him one of the “Top Ten Trailblazers” in classical music today.

This upcoming spring, Daniels will be singing the title role in David McVicar’s inventive new production of Giulio Cesare at the Metropolitan OperaThe production is scheduled to be broadcast as a part of the Met’s “Live in HD” Series on April 27, 2013.
