The Schumann Project: "Frauenliebe und Leben" and "Dichterliebe," two stories of love and loss. Soprano Andrea Edith Moore brings a "certain opalescence that is particularly served by her impressive phrasing and inherent musicality" to myriad leading roles including Pamina, Zerlina, The Countess, Anne Trulove and Manon among others. Ms. Moore is a regular singer with the North Carolina Opera where she "garnered the biggest ovations" for her performance of Micaela in Carmen. She served on the voice faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill for seven years and now teaches privately. Tenor Jason Karn has impressed critics and audiences alike with his vibrant, bright tone and dramatic characterizations. He recently made his New York City Opera Debut in the role of the Young Gypsy in the New York premiere of Rachmaninoff's "Aleko." Karn's engagements include his Avery Fisher Hall debut with the American Symphony Orchestra in Vincent D'Indy's "Fervaal," his Washington National Opera debut as Scaramuccio in "Ariadne auf Naxos," and Cassio in "Otello" with Opera Carolina. David Heid comes to North Carolina after a successful career in New York City as a vocal coach/accompanist. Among the many well-known singers he has performed with are Karen Beardsley, Susan Dunn, Adria Firestone, Carolyn James and Christine Weidinger. David is currently a staff accompanist and teaches piano at Duke University as well as being in demand throughout the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area as a collaborative artist.
