It’s time for another weekly artist feature, as we continue celebrating the artists who will make the musical based on my book, Angels of a Lower Flight. I am so humbled by this production, and I am so inspired by all the talented individuals who are working on it. This week, I’d like to introduce the extraordinary Wilbert Kellerman. Mr. Kellerman will be playing my husband Joe in the upcoming musical. He has told me he is so happy to be working on this project. It is wonderful to know that he is inspired by our cause at HaitiChildren.
American baritone Wilbert Kellerman has been described as “superb…a promising voice” (OperaWire) and “winning” (Schmopera) in recent performances. Upcoming appearances include a recital at University of Scranton, and Golaud in Pelléas et Mélisande at the Moss Arts Center in Virginia. Recent appearances include the role of Hunding in Die Walküre as a guest performer with Manhattan Opera Studio, a gala performance for the Roanoke Symphony, the 2018 Mildred Miller International Competition as a semi-finalist, the 2018 Kosciuszko Foundation Marcella Sembrich International Voice Competition, and in 2019 the Secret Police Agent in Menotti’s The Consul, as well as the title role in The Mikado with Bronx Opera. Past professional engagements include Alcade and Chirurgo in La forza del destino with New Amsterdam Opera. Wilbert recently earned a Master of Music degree at Mannes School of Music, where he performed the roles of Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, and Nick Shadow in The Rake’s Progress. In the summer of 2018 he was an Apprentice Artist at Teatro Nuovo, the new home of Bel Canto at Caramoor. In past summers he has been a young artist at Songfest in Los Angeles, and in Sicily where he made his international debut, singing Marco in Gianni Schicchi and Baron Douphol in an updated staging of La Traviata. A cum laude graduate of James Madison University, Mr. Kellerman performed the role of Colline in La bohème and appeared in several other productions. Also an accomplished violinist, Mr. Kellerman has won several awards and competitions. Originally from Radford, Virginia, Wilbert currently resides in New York City.
Our team is honored to have the opportunity to see Mr. Kellerman perform this fall at our fundraiser in New York. We at HaitiChildren love our little angels so much. It touches my heart when I know that our community of support and love is growing. We are truly grateful to Mr. Kellerman and all the artists involved in these exciting projects.
