Mo' tenor Dixon to give recital

Critic's Choice

Classical Music

September 22, 2002|By Tim Smith

Rodrick Dixon, one-third of the popular Three Mo' Tenors act, will give a recital today to benefit the W.W. Payne Community Outreach Center.

Dixon has chosen an enticing program of superior art songs by Schubert, Schumann, Faure and others; opera (a duet from Verdi's Rigoletto) and sacred music (Gounod's St. Cecilia Mass); and traditional spirituals. A medley from Kern's Showboat and, for a grand finale, the Battle Hymn of the Republic will complete the concert.

Joining him will be soprano Alfreda Burke, pianist Victor Simonson, the 80-voice Concert Choir of the City Temple of Baltimore (Baptist) and the City Temple Chamber Orchestra. Distinguished choral director Nathan Carter will conduct.

The performance is at 6 p.m. today at the Murphy Fine Arts Center, Morgan State University, 1700 E. Cold Spring Lane. Tickets are $20 to $50, available at the box office.
