Music for Veteran’s Day


Emily Cottam

Langelihle Mngxati

Tri-Cities Opera presents ‘We Shall Find Peace: A Tribute to the Armed Forces’ to commemorate Veteran’s Day as part of the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra’s Beethoven Project. Mezzo-soprano Emily Cottam and bass-baritone Langelihle Mngxati join us to talk about the concert, which includes that Prisoner’s Chorus from Beethoven’s Opera Fidelio, as well as arias from Kevin Puts’ World War I opera Silent Night, and Tom Cipullo’s Vietnam War opera Glory Denied.
