Ted Stevens Young Alaskan Artist Award Recital
Baritone Justin Birchell in Concert
Baritone Justin Birchell is an Alaska-grown performer, music educator, and composer who is well-known to local music and theatre audiences. Justin has appeared with Anchorage Opera, Opera Fairbanks, and numerous Alaskan theatrical organizations. Through Opera UCLA this spring, Justin co-created two roles in world premieres of new one-act operas, the Emperor in Nicky Sohn’s The Emperor’s New Clothes, and Avraham in Michel Klein’s Akeidah. His original song-cycle “Three Nocturnes - Words of the Night” was premiered this June.
This solo recital showcases Justin’s melting lyric baritone and wide stylistic range with works from Schubert to John Luther Adams. Justin will be joined by pianist and award director Juliana Osinchuk.
Since 1999, the Anchorage festival of music has held an annual competition to honor an Alaskan musician entering the professional field. The award was re-named the Ted Stevens Young Alaskan Artist Award in July 2018 in recognition of many years of strong support by Senator Stevens.
Ted Stevens Young Alaskan Artist Award Recital is presented by Anchorage Festival of Music.
