"This person checks every box and created some that weren’t even there," Lucas Meachem says of his wife and pianist, Irina. They met while rehearsing for The Barber of Seville and a courtship started. They now tour the world together, he sings and she plays. We are so happy to welcome them to CPA on February 24. Reminisce with this WQXR blog post with Lucas about their loving duet in music and in life. Happy Valentines Day! http://bit.ly/2SCshRC
Did you know that The Commons has a framework for chosen artists to support other working artists in this area?
Our artists-in-residence will each choose another locally-based artist, who will have access to studio time and an in-process showing of their work. Applications close on Feb. 21 >> carolinaperformingarts.org/thecommons
We can't help but tap our toes to this clip from a recent radio performance of Sammy Miller and the Congregation on KSPN in Aspen, CO.

Those pipes! No wonder they call him the rock star of opera. Join Grammy Award winning baritone Lucas Meachem for a unique night of storytelling and song at Carolina Performing Arts. He'll be performing selections from "Old American Songs" by Aaron Copland, arias from Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" and even reprising his Grammy winning role of Figaro with a peice from The Ghosts of Versailles. It is sure to be a night of operatic perportions. Tickets available now --> http://bit.ly/2Se7C5f

It's sure to be one heck of a night. Don't miss out! http://bit.ly/2GamPid
