    After a year abroad in Germany and Canada, Armidale native baritone, Ziggy Harris, has returned to town for a short time, and will be conducting a recital of operatic arias and German lieder.

    This recital is to showcase his work and development thus far to the wonderful community that raised, taught and inspired him.

    Retaking the concert stage with Ziggy is the orchestrally-minded, magnificent pianist Dr. Robert Manley. 

    This recital will be comprised of music by Mozart, Bizet, Mahler, Britten and Gounod.

    With this recital, Ziggy wishes to demonstrate that the support he has received from the abundant musical and theatrical community of Armidale has driven him to pursue a professional performing career.

    Currently based in Montréal, Canada, Ziggy has completed the first of his two years undertaking a Masters Of Music (Opera & Voice) at the Schulich School Of Music within McGill University, with scholarships, and under the tutelage of baritone, Brett Polegato, and coach, Louise Pelletier. 

    So far within the program, he has performed as a variety of roles such as Cadmus in Handel's Semele, The Master Of Ceremonies in Massenet's Cendrillon and Dandini in Rossini's La Cenerentola. He has performed recitals of song cycles by Gustav Mahler, Maurice Ravel, and performed the world premiere of a song cycle by contemporary Canadian composer, Sylvia Rickard. 

    This coming August, Ziggy will return to Thüringia, Germany, as he has been invited to rejoin the Lyric Opera Studio Weimar to play Il Conte in Mozart's iconic opera Le nozze di Figaro. Ziggy performed with the studio in 2022 as Papageno in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, and in 2023 as the notorious title role in Mozart's Don Giovanni

    Ziggy will be departing Australia a few days after this recital.

    Deepest thanks to Clare O'Sullivan and The Armidale School for allowing this recital to happen within the Hoskins Centre, which was Ziggy's home away from home during his formative years.
