The Tucker Foundation will be the subject of a special event on Wednesday, June 27 at 7 pm, when WQXR’s Naomi Lewin (not pictured) will host an exclusive concert of arias and duets performed by sopranos Ailyn Pérez and Angela Meade and tenor Stephen Costello in The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space at WQXR.

As if that’s not exciting enough, the evening  “will include an intimate conversation with soprano Aprile Millo, winner of the 1985 Richard Tucker Award,” and what’s more, you, member of the cher public, might be there too! 

Your doyenne has been asked to bestow a pair of tickets upon a parterrian who will attend the event while the rest of us listen in.  If you’d like to win these tickets, you can enter the competition by leaving a comment below this posting discussing a favorite performance by a  Richard Tucker Award Winner.

The most entertaining comment (as judged by La Cieca’s blue-ribbon panel) left before noon on Monday, June 25 will win its author these coveted tickets. All decisions, as usual, are subject to La Cieca’s iron whim.
