Baritone Stephen Salters will be the featured performer at the Monadnock Music concert on Saturday, July 23, at the Peterborough Town House.

Salters will perform a program titled “A Tribute to Phyllis Curtin.” Music will incude American music of Michael Ching, George Gershwin and Cole Porter as well as Portuguese and Spanish songs and several other surprises.

Phyllis Curtin was an American classical soprano who had an active career in operas and concerts from the early 1950s through the 1980s.

Salters first gained wide attention in 1996 when he took first place in Belgium’s Queen Elisabeth International Competition of Singing. He also received first place in the International Puccini-Licia Albanese Competition, and received a George London Foundation Award in memory of Bruce Yarnel. Shortly thereafter he won the prestigious Walter N. Naumburg Prize.

On the opera stage Salters has performed more than 30 roles both in contemporary works and standard repertory, including Handel’s “Alcina” and “Guilio Cesare,” Mozart’s “Don Giovanni,” Shostakovich’s “The Nose,” Weill’s “The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny,” and Britten’s “Peter Grimes.”

Linda Osborn will accompany Salters on piano.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $30 and can be ordered online at www.monadnockmusic.org or by calling 757-3929.
