Avid classical music fans take note - a brilliant bass singer, David Brundage, will perform at Virginia Tech in Squires Recital salon on November 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the door for only $5 and a reception will follow the performance. Brundage is an admired singer from the Washington D.C. area who has performed extensively throughout the country.

Brundage has received enthusiastic reviews for past performances. In his recent portrayal as Osmin in Mozart?s, Abduction from the Seraglio, The Washington Post?s Joseph McLellan said, ?Brundage was chosen for his deep, resonant voice as well as his considerable acting skill?and he nearly steals the show.?

Brundage, accompanied by Virginia Tech pianist Tracy Cowden, will sing a varied selection of songs from Handel, Mozart, Rorem, Verdi, Rossini, Tchaikovsky, Gremin, Moussorgsky, and will close with Hague and Dr. Seuss?s ?You?re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.? The program is extensive and Brundage?s intense, resounding voice conveys new life to these magnificent works.

"David Brundage is an amazing performer with a beautiful bass voice. A voice with his range and caliber are rare - we are fortunate that he will be performing on our campus, and that our students and community can hear such a talented soloist," said Nancy McDuffie, voice professor of the Virginia Tech Music Department.
