Great Opera Singers Around Boston, An Historical Survey, pt. 1
Great Opera Singers Around Boston, An Historical Survey, pt. 1 Ed Tapper, speaker Noted Boston-based lecturer Ed Tapper returns to the New England Opera Club in October with a long overdue program: Great Singers Around Boston, An Historical Survey. The audio presentation will focus on renowned opera singers who were born and trained in the Boston area, as well as singers born elsewhere who made Boston their adopted home, spending the bulk of their careers entertaining local audiences. Some visited briefly, but became immensely popular here, while others stayed on to teach voice at area schools and conservatories, passing on their art to future generations. At Suffolk University, Ed Tapper has taught a course entitled Music Around Boston, which dealt with the history of music in MA, focusing on the legendary figures of our musical past, as well as historic, musical landmarks in Boston and throughout the state. For over 20 years, Mr. Tapper has been the owner of Orpheus Classics , a retail store on 326 Commonwealth Ave., specializing in operatic and classical music recordings. During that time, he has culled several rare, unpublished recordings by local singers of the past. A large number of these one-of-a-kind documents, commercially unavailable in any form, will be featured on his program, which promises to be an unusual and fascinating excursion into our city’s rich and varied vocal tradition.
