Daniel Narducci with RPO Tonight and Saturday

Tonight's RPO Pops concert features baritone Daniel Narducci singing classic love songs from Broadway musicals, including "Some Enchanted Evening" (South Pacific), "If Ever I Would Leave You" (Camelot), and "Begin the Beguine" (Cole Porter's Jubilee). He's also singing "Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music - playing the guitar just like Captain von Trapp did in the movie!

Daniel has performed with the RPO before - he was last here in the summer of 2006 for an evening of swing music from the 1940s at CMAC, and has performed with the RPO a number of times at Vail. I talked with him yesterday following his appearance on the Channel 10 noon news, and he mentioned that he had performed with the RPO the first year the Orchestra went out to the Bravo! Vail Festival.

In addition to having a great voice, he's also really interesting to talk with. He's a graduate of the Indiana University School of Music and now lives in Bloomington with his family. Turns out he's into gardening and said he's looking forward to getting seeds started soon for his garden. He also grows wheatgrass indoors during the colder months, to add to healthy juice drinks.
