Amahl and the Night Visitors
December 10, 2020

This morning we premiered our collaborative effort to present Gian Carlo Menotti's Christmas Opera Amahl and the Night Visitors. Joining forces were players from the Grand Rapids Symphony, the Adult and Youth Choirs of Mayflower Congregational Church, and singing the title role of Amahl, one of our choristers from the Grand Rapids Choir of Men & Boys. Filmed virtually following Covid saftey protocols.

This morning we visited with Rachael Ruiz on WoodTV's 8-West. Click here to watch the interview.

Iestyn Davies is one of the leading counter-tenors in the world today. Mr. Davies trained as a chorister at St. John's College, Cambridge (where, by the way, our GRCMB boys have been invited to come and train for a week with Master of Music, Andrew Nethsingha). He later returned to St. John's as a Choral Scholar. In between, Iestyn took up his GCSE & A-Level  music studies at Wells Cathedral School where he was a student of Scott Bosscher. This past December, Iestyn made his Metropolitan Opera debut opposite Renee Fleming in Handel's Rodelinda as well as his recital debut at Carnegie Hall. This February & March bring Iestyn to nearby Chicago, making his Lyric Opera debut in Handel's Rinaldo. Renewing their old friendship, Iestyn heartily accepted Mr. Bosscher's invitation to spend time training the counter tenors of GRCMB. Click here to hear Iestyn sing,
