About

I am tenor that has sung with Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, Salt Lake Symphony & Paradigm Chamber Orchestra (in addition to numerous concert performances in the Salt Lake metro area). Opera is a strong love of mine, but another passion is in song & recitals. Recently, I was able to sing in London, at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, on one of their recital series - in an experience that was magnificent.

After hearing some of Clint's songs, I decided that I wanted to commission a new setting of Walt Whitman's A Jubilant Song, and have the world premiere of this piece on my upcoming international recital tour that will occur in 2013.

I first heard Clint's music last year, when bass-baritone Tim Hill was commissioning a set of Walt Whitman songs (that are quite lovely). What attracts me to Clint's music is the way that he uses harmonies in new and unusual ways, but still keeping the vocal line stunningly beautiful. To find out more about Clint, google "Clint Borzoni" or go to http://clintjborzoni.com. Do both...Clint does not "toot his own horn" as much as he should on his personal website (another reason to like this guy and his writing!)

At the end of the process, I would like to create a studio recording of this song (along with a full recording of the recital that will be taken on tour). Clint's commission, the fee for the studio recording & the accompanist's fee is what make up the $550 total. Any and all donations will be gladly accepted! Please help Clint & I create new repertoire for the amazing art that is song!
