Coming to The Berman April 24, 2014 7:30 p.m.
Nathan Gunn has made a reputation as one of the most exciting and in-demand baritones of the day. He has appeared in internationally renowned opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Paris Opera, and Teatro Real in Madrid. A frequent recitalist, he will be joined by pianist Julie Gunn, his wife, on The Berman stage.
University of Illinois professor John Wustman, who instructed Julie Gunn in a master class, sings high praise of the dynamic duo: “Nathan is just a super-nice guy … friendly, polite… And Julie plays so well … it’s remarkable. They’re both very successful, gifted, attractive people.”
