David Neal met with us to discuss the next “Meet the Artist” event (VIDEO)

Join The Arts at Grace for informal conversation and excerpts from great performances in its new “Meet the Artist” series on Facebook Live. This Sunday afternoon Artistic Director and SUNY Cortland professor David Neal welcomes dramatic tenor Issachah Savage, who Neal worked with as a student at Morgan State University. 

Issachah Savage


Savage’s career has taken him to the Metropolitan Opera, Chicago Lyric Opera, and many other companies in the United States and abroad.  He has also appeared with symphonies all over the nation. First prize award winner in the International Wagner Competition, Savage’s voice has been described by The Washington Post as “a large voice of melting beauty,“ and by the San Francisco Examiner as a “heldentenor par excellence” with “trumpet-like, clear, open-throated, powerful” singing. Tune in for an informal conversation with recorded performances of some spectacular singing.
