April/2016  

❶ Between performances of Roberto Devereux at the Met this month, Matthew Polenzani is one of the five previous George London Award winners singing on Apr. 6 at the Foundation’s Celebration Concert. On Apr. 30, he performs Die Schöne Müllerin at Northwestern University; the next day, he leads a master class at the university. In May, he repeats the Schubert cycle at Oper Frankfurt. In June, he makes his debut at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, as Puccini’s Rodolfo.

From Apr. 8–17, WQXR hosts a used-instrument drive to benefit students throughout New York and New Jersey. WQXR’s first drive, in 2014, refurbished 3,000 instruments and made lessons possible for more than 10,000 young musicians, such as Ladayah Josiah and her classmates, above, of Brooklyn. This year, the drive’s organizers hope for 6,000 instruments. For more information on how to make a donation from any state, visit www.WQXR.org/kids.

Xavier Giannoli’s French-language film Marguerite, loosely based on the life and “career” of Florence Foster Jenkins, opens in select U.S. cities on the first of the month. The film, starring Catherine Frot, features a soundtrack of numerous operatic standards and tells the story of an opera fanatic who enjoys dressing in elaborate costumes and performing for her socialite friends, who create the illusion that she is talented when she is actually terribly out of tune.

Broadway stars Victoria Clark and Kelli O’Hara—who made her Met debut last season as Valencienne in The Merry Widow—sing the Sorceress and Dido, respectively, in MasterVoices performances of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, semistaged on Apr. 28 and 29. The Baroque opera will open with a world-premiere prologue, composed by Michael John LaChiusa.

The 2016 Kennedy Center Arts Summit, which brings together leaders from various artistic fields for conversation and connection in Washington, D.C., will be cohosted on Apr. 25 by soprano Renée Fleming and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. This year’s third-annual summit, presented with The Aspen Institute Arts Program and Citizen University, will be live-streamed on the Kennedy Center website.
