Castle Hill Will Again Host New York Opera Society Singers On August 10

For the second year in a row, the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill will host a special members-only concert, featuring four professional opera performers affiliated with the New York Opera Society.

This free Castle Hill Member event will feature four performers -- sopranos Jennifer Cho and Rosa Betancourt, tenor John Tiranno and baritone Nathan Resika -- who will sing selections from a variety of well-known operas.

Jennifer Cho is the founder and executive director of the New York Opera Society, and this will be her first Cape Cod appearance. As a soloist, Jennifer has performed extensively in Germany, France, Sweden, Italy and the United States in venues such as the Neue Galerie, the Cornell Club, the Liederkranz Foundation, Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, Columbia University’s Rabi-Warner Concert Series, Northwestern University, the Cathedrale Saint-Etienne de Toulouse. She has played many operatic roles including The Female Chorus, Musetta, Nanetta, Zerlina, Aennchen, Despina, Norina and Susanna in notable venues such as the Staatstheater Darmstadt in Germany, the Municipal Theater of Castres in France and Merkin Hall in New York City.

Nathan Resika has been praised for his “sonorous” voice by critics and colleagues alike, while carving out a niche for himself as both a classic basso cantante and an interpreter of modern works. Nathan will sing the role of Alidoro in La Centerola with Winter Opera Saint Louis in early 2017. He recently sang the role of Ferrando in Il Trovatore with Cleveland Opera Circle (June, 2016) where critic Daniel Hathaway wrote, "As Ferrando, the captain of the Count of Luna’s guard, the resonant bass Nathan Resika immediately seized and held attention with his lengthy prologue that summed up the backstory of the opera." Nathan was recently named as one of eight finalists, from over 100 singers, in the 2016 New Jersey Verismo Opera Competition. He is a former summer resident of the Outer Cape, and the son of artist Paul Resika and singer Blair Resika of Truro.
