A Cabaret Unleashed: An Evening with Chrissy Amon & Robert Byrens

Thursday, November 14, 2019
7:30 PM

Grand Rapids artists Chrissy Amon and Robert Byrens will present an evening of cabaret favorites—including some surprises! These collaborators first became acquainted when Chrissy studied with Robert as a GVSU music student in 2005. Since then, Chrissy has mostly performed on opera stages across the USA but has always had an affinity for Broadway and cabaret music. Her work as a singing actor propelled her twice to the finals of the international Lotte Lenya competition hosted by the Kurt Weill Foundation in New York. After her return to the Grand Rapids area, she and Robert partnered as spirited collaborators, presenting concerts throughout our community. Since most opera patrons would recognize Robert as the most masterful of classical musicians (and 25-year rehearsal pianist for Opera Grand Rapids), it will be a treat to hear him unleashed! He was, after all, the star of his high school rock band. Do not miss this collaboration between two of our local gifted artists!
