Concert features baritone Sidney Outlaw

Four-State audiences will have the opportunity to hear one of the top young operatic voices in the U.S. when baritone Sidney Outlaw takes the stage on Friday, Jan. 30, as part of Pittsburg State University’s 2014-2015 Solo and Chamber Music Series. Outlaw’s performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Sharon K. Dean Recital Hall in McCray Hall, 205 E. Lindburg.

Outlaw, who holds a master’s degree in vocal performance from The Juilliard School and is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, is a recent graduate of the Merola Opera Program and a former member of the Gerdine Young Artist Program at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

A sought-after concert singer and recitalist, Outlaw has appeared at Carnegie Hall in the “Messiah,” at Avery Fisher Hall in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, and at the Music Academy of the West, where he performed Mahler’s “Lieder eines Fahrenden Gesellen.” In 2010, he was the Grand Prize winner of the Concurso Internacional de Canto Montserrat Caballe. Most recently, Outlaw traveled to Guinea as an arts envoy with the U.S. State Department, where he performed a remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King.

For his Pittsburg performance, Outlaw will be accompanied by Warren Jones, principal pianist for the West Coast chamber music group Camerata Pacifica.

The concert, made possible through cooperation with the Walter W. Naumburg Foundation, will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Sharon Kay Dean Recital Hall, located in McCray Hall on the PSU campus.
