Oh, tenors these days...

Written by Elizabeth Bloom on .

ICYMI, my article on tenor Carl Tanner ran today. Carl was a truck driver and bounty hunter before becoming a professional opera singer. His story is just terrific: http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/music/2013/11/13/Trucker-to-tracker-to-a-world-class-tenor-1/stories/201311130042

That's not to say he's the only tenor gracing Pittsburgh Opera productions these days that is doing interesting stuff. Sean Panikkar, who plays Tamino in the current production of "The Magic Flute," is a member of tenor trio "Forte," which made it to the finals in last season's America's Got Talent.
