We're in Atlanta for a few days to work with our Music Director Designate Fred Scott, currently Director of the choral program at The Westminster Schools. We enjoyed interacting with his students yesterday and another chance to enjoy Darita's mother's cooking.Monday we head for Miami and other points in Florida. We're very happy to reconnect with Casey Breves who's joining us for the next few months.
What Casey is up to these days, aside from coming home to Chanticleer for a bit:
Casey Breves performs across the United States, Europe, and Asia as both classical and pop vocalist. Born and raised in New York, he sang with Chanticleer for three seasons, 2010-2013. Chanticleer was his first professional engagement after graduation from Yale University, where he was a member of the Schola Cantorum and the Whiffenpoofs. He recently served as Vocal Director for the National Tours of Guys and Dolls and Hello, Dolly!, and was featured in a solo spot on Saturday Night LIve in the sketch "Christmas Album". He was a soloist in the world premiere of the oratorio A Melancholy Beauty at the Kennedy Center and Avery Fisher Hall, starred in The Fall of the House of Usher at the NYC Fringe Festival, sang the title role in Monteverdi's Orfeo at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and appeared as the principal soloist in Too Hot to Handel: The Gospel Messiah with the Symphony Silicon Valley. He currently lives in New York City, where he is performing regularly while writing and recording a debut original album. As a cabaret artist, he has a standing engagement at Feinstein's in San Francisco, and a weekly show (on hiatus for the moment) at Whitman and Bloom in Manhattan. You can also find him on YouTube. Casey is thrilled to re-join Chanticleer as a guest artist.
