Tenor Gives His First Recital At WFU

In his first faculty recital at Wake Forest University, tenor Richard Heard will sing music ranging from Handel to Andrew Lloyd Weber Sunday, Oct. 13.

The 4 p.m. concert in Brendle Recital Hall also will feature Wake Forest soprano Teresa Radomski and pianist Pamela Howland.

Heard joined the Wake Forest faculty this fall. Previously, he was assistant professor of music and chair of the vocal division at Jackson State University. He earned a bachelor of music degree from Southern Methodist University and a master of arts degree from the Unviersity of California. He has extensive experience in both opera and oratorio, performing such roles as Terrando in Mozart’s “Cosi Fan Tutte” and Nemorino in Donizetti’s “Elixir.” In December 1994, Heard made his European debut in Germany performing several concerts in Berlin, Hanover and Merzig. He has been a regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera auditions and has received grants from the National Society of Arts and Letters and the National Federation of Music Clubs.
