Verdi, Wagner and Hollywood: A Bicentennial Birthday Celebration
The distinguished and extraordinary career of John Mauceri has brought him not only to the world's greatest opera companies and symphony orchestras, but also to the musical stages of Broadway and Hollywood, as well as the most prestigious halls of academia. His mentors include Leopold Stokowski, Leonard Bernstein, and Carlo Maria Giulini. One of the world's most accomplished recording artists, he is the recipient of Grammy, Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, Edison, two Emmy and four Deutsche Schallplatten awards, among other prestigious recognitions.
A graduate of Yale University, where he taught for 15 years, he recently completed his seventh year as chancellor of the University of North Carolina's School of the Arts, the nation's unique stand-alone public university of conservatories in music, dance, drama, filmmaking, and design & production. For sixteen seasons at the Hollywood Bowl, Mr. Mauceri broke all records by leading over 300 performances before a collective audience of 4 million people with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, which was created for him by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.
In his continuing series Music in the Life of a Great City, Grammy Award-winning conductor, educator and writer John Mauceri presents an exciting bicentennial birthday celebration of music by iconic composers Verdi and Wagner. This evening's repertoire is the second of three unique collaborations between John Mauceri and the Valley Performing Arts Center.
