Call in to speak with the host
The African American Voice in Classical Music host Patrick D. McCoy rolls out the red carpet for opera singer Lawrence Brownlee, who hails from Youngstown, Ohio. "I get a chance next year to go back to my hometown and there's an opera I'm doing—one performance of The Barber of Seville with a company called Opera Western Reserve," says the superstar tenor. "It's just for my family, my teachers, my neighbors—people who can't travel to Munich and France and Italy. But they'll get a chance to hear it. So I do get a chance to go back and do that type of charismatic, melismatic stuff. And they're all happy and proud of what I'm doing in the world of opera."
It's good to talk.
