The BTV Foundation Presents: Jubilant Sykes, Baritone, Live in Concert

Thursday Jan. 27th  |  5:30pm Hors d’oeuvres and Wine Gathering  7pm Concert

Perhaps no vocalist of our time possesses a more exquisitely versatile instrument than American baritone Jubilant Sykes. Mr. Sykes brings a new dimension to the traditional career of the classically trained vocalist by drawing on gospel and jazz influences. His versatility has allowed him to collaborate with several leading artists such as renowned soprano Reneé Fleming in the Mozart Requiem, touring and singing with Julie Andrews, as well as performing in a Boston Pops televised special and with singer-songwriter Josh Groban. He has worked with famed conductors Kurt Masur, Lorin Maazel, Leonard Slatkin, Christoph Eschenbach – and appeared with many of the world’s finest orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and the London Symphony. His unique gifts have taken him to stages as diverse as the Metropolitan Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. For the first time, Mr. Sykes will perform on the Butterfield Trail Village Performance Hall stage.
