Acclaimed Canadian-born tenor Philippe Castagner will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 9, at the Wattenbarger Auditorium of Tennessee Tech University’s Bryan Fine Arts Building.

Among his various accomplishments, Castagner is a winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

In 2005, Castagner won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, leading him to performances in New York at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C and in Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Castagner made his debut with the New York Philharmonic in October 2006 in Ravel’s one-act opera, L’enfant es les sortileges.

The Washington Post proclaims Castagner to be “an expressive tenor voice with keen musical intelligence.”

A Center Stage event, the concert will be free and open to the public.
