Neighborhood Concert: Jeffrey Goble and Jerome Tan
Baritone Jeffrey Goble is winning over audiences with his creamy voice and ambitious taste in music. Wowing audiences in classic roles like Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Schaunard in La bohème, he’s also a passionate promoter of new operatic works such as Mark Adamo’s Little Women, Ricky Ian Gordon’s The Grapes of Wrath, and William Bolcom’s A Wedding. Winning honorable mention in the prestigious Marilyn Horne Song Competition, he also recently performed in Carnegie Hall’s The Song Continues master class with famed pianist Graham Johnson.
Jerome Tan came to the United States from Singapore on a music scholarship to the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. In 2002, Tan was invited to attend Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, where he won the Marilyn Horne Foundation Award as collaborative pianist. Since then, he has returned to the stage many times for vocal recitals at Carnegie Hall, France’s Music Academy at Villecroze, and the Steans Music Institute of the Ravinia Festival. Tan has worked with the Gotham Chamber Opera and Opera Company of Philadelphia.
