Please join us for "Songs We Know: When Hits Become Art" with Christiaan Smith - a concert to benefit education programs at Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass. Hear Smith sing a classic vocal recital to include songs of Johnny Cash, John Mayer, Chet Baker, Norah Jones, Maroon 5, Adele, John Legend, and more.
Smith is the son of Jan Mirenda Smith, Executive Director of Bergstrom-Mahler Museum of Glass.
He went to Neenah High School, UW-Madison, Indiana University, Boston Opera Institute. He’s sung opera in Italy and studied with Marilyn Horne. He’s performed for two former U.S. presidents.
You saw him at the Fox Cities PAC as Gaston in the national tour of Beauty and the Beast, the show in which reviewers called his voice “formidable,” and “show-stealing.” Now listen to him sing a classic vocal recital before he takes it to Carnegie Hall.
This recital isn’t a bunch of songs you don’t know in languages you don’t speak. It’s Johnny Cash, John Mayer, Chet Baker, Norah Jones, Maroon 5, Adele, John Legend, and more. Watch as Christiaan uses the passion of his robust operatic voice to turn hit songs into more than just earworms… he turns hits into art. Classical art song never sounded so familiar.
All tickets include a talk-back session with Christiaan after the concert.
VIP tickets include an exclusive meet and greet with Christiaan and an autographed photo.
