CCM’s Sesquicentennial Celebration welcomes back accomplished alumnus Stuart Skelton (MM Voice, 1995) for an evening of intimate art song on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018.

A Grammy-nominated tenor, Skelton was named the International Opera Awards' Male Singer of the Year in 2014. He is critically acclaimed for his outstanding musicianship, tonal beauty and intensely dramatic portrayals.

Skelton has appeared in many of the world’s most celebrated opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera, Seattle Opera, English National Opera and Paris Opera. For his CCM performance, Skelton will be accompanied by faculty artist Kenneth Griffiths, piano.

In addition to his guest artist recital, Skelton will present master classes from 3-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 21, and from 10:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22. The concert and both master classes take place in CCM's Robert J. Werner Recital Hall.

Stuart Skelton's performance is supported by the Thomas W. Busse Trust.
