The Grammy Award-winning, internationally renowned Thomas Hampson returns to his hometown for the celebration of the Tenth anniversary of the reopening of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. He will lend his velvety baritone to a program of arias from popular operas and a selection of classics from the American Songbook. Hampson gave the final performance at the theater before it went dark and returned in 2009 for the symphony’s world premiere of Michael Daugherty’s “Letters From Lincoln.”
