Upcoming events in Heidelberg

As part of his annual Heidelberger Frühling Academy, Thomas Hampson will present a series of performances at the Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg. On April 1 he is joined by esteemed colleague, bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff, for a special concert featuring music that is a respective signature for each of them. Quasthoff also serves as a mentor at this year’s Academy. The evening’s program includes favorites from Mr. Hampson’s Song of America tours, and popular standards given new life by Mr. Quasthoff. Pianists Wolfram Rieger and Frank Chastenier also join them for this not-to-be-missed event.

To celebrate the close of the series in Heidelberg, Hampson and the Fellows from the Lied Academy join together for a final celebratory performance on April 2.
