Stars of Opera: "Jan Peerce- If I Were A Rich Man" 

Facilitated by Maestro Giuseppe Albanese, this documentary looks at legendary Jewish American tenor, Jan Peerce including his music as well as personal life. Peerce, after establishing an important reputation in radio and on the concert stage, became an integral part of the Metropolitan Opera’s history throughout his nearly thirty seasons with the company. His amazing vocal longevity, which is indicative of the thoroughness of his vocal technique, kept him active on stage and on recordings well into his seventies. Q and A will follow the film.

Instructor: Giuseppe Albanese attended the University of Vermont and received his degree in history in 1966. In 1989, after five years of intensive study, he developed a dynamic education program entitled the Joy of Opera. A recipient of the Lifelong Learning Society’s Excellence in Teaching Award, Mr. Albanese currently presents opera courses at FAU’s Boca Raton campus, as well as lectures to many organizations.
