Gregory Feldman

Gregory Feldman, baritone

Driven by a desire to explore and express the human experience through song, New York-based baritone Gregory Feldmann is a rising young artist on opera and recital stages alike. He enjoys a partnership with pianist Nathaniel LaNasa. After together winning First Prize in the Joy in Singing International Song Competition, the duo made their Weill Hall debut in February 2020. The program, Degenerate Music, focused on censored composers in the Third Reich.Their next collaborative project, Monuments, centers on the evolving relationship between society and commemorative art and music. On the operatic stage, in February 2020 Feldmann sang the role of the composer in Virgil Thomson’s The Mother of Us All, in a collaboration between Juilliard Opera, the New York Philharmonic, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He was a Gaddes Festival Artist with Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in 2020, and was slated to sing Morales in Bizet’s Carmen, as well as cover Oliver Sacks in the world premiere of Tobias Picker’s Awakenings. Feldmann is an Artist Diploma in Opera Studies degree candidate at The Juilliard School, studying under Elizabeth Bishop. He hails from York, Pennsylvania.

Nathaniel LaNasa

Nathaniel LaNasa, piano

Fascinated with the intersection of storytelling, speech, and movement, pianist Nathaniel LaNasa partners with singers, dancers, and ensembles in music spanning five centuries. A consummate collaborator, LaNasa has been praised for his “stormy lyricism” (New York Times) as well as his “poise and elegance” (Feast of Music). Winner of the 2019 Joy In Singing International Art Song Competition with baritone Gregory Feldmann, the duo made their Carnegie debut in February 2020. LaNasa also performs regularly with vocalist Lucy Dhegrae, most recently at Resonant Bodies Festival and Albany’s American Music Festival. His NYC credits include Alice Tully Hall, MoMA, and (le) Poisson Rouge. “The magic,” he says, “lies in expanding the space of our shared inspiration. For me, it’s all about dancing with the tension and flow of musical dialogue.” A graduate of the Juilliard School and a 2018 fellow at Tanglewood, LaNasa joined the coaching staff at Berlin Opera Academy in 2019.
