Two Nyack music students at the New York City campus are making a mark on the cultural arts and entertainment capital of the world.
Radoslav Lesay made his New York City debut performance on November 16 at the Amato Opera in the East Village, playing the role of Beppe in Ruggiero Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. The Amato is known to be a training ground for aspiring singers and performers.
Brightnie Jones was a member of the background vocalists singing with Grammy nominated recording artist, Josh Groban, on NBC’s television broadcast of the Christmas Tree Lighting in Rockefeller Center. The show aired on Wednesday, December 28. Mr. Groban known for his powerful hit, “You Raise Me Up,” has appeared on such programs as Ally McBeal, Oprah Winfrey, Good Morning America, and The Today Show, as well as the Superbowl, the Oscars and the closing ceremonies of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics.
Congratulations to Mr. Lesay and Ms. Jones!
