Young singers, Jerome Hines to perform operatic works BY Stephen Wigler

March 25, 1995

The Rosa Ponselle Foundation will present a free concert tonight in Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher College. It will showcase the winners of its fourth annual "All-Marylanders" Competition, in which 100 young Maryland singers between the ages of 13 and 21 competed last spring.

Veteran Metropolitan Opera bass-baritone, Jerome Hines, will introduce the singers and do some vocalizing himself.

Nine of last year's winners will sing selections from Mozart's "Die Zauberflote," Charpentier's "Louise," Johann Strauss' "Die Fleder maus" and other operatic works.

Hines will sing a group of arias from Verdi's "Simon Boccanegra" and Mozart's "Le Nozze di Figaro," as well as the Jerome Kern classic "Ol' Man River."

With a chorus of the young winners to back him, Hines will conclude by singing "The Impossible Dream."

The audience is invited to meet the artists at a reception in the lobby. Free tickets -- two per caller -- may be obtained by calling the Ponselle Foundation at (410) 486-4616.
