Wilson on the Opera Circuit
Nathan Wilson B.M. '05, former chief proofreader, opinion editor, and distribution manager at The Ithacan, recently returned from Poland in January, where he sang the role of Figaro in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro at the Silesian State Opera House in Bytom. The production was part of a collaboration between the Karol Szymanowski Music Academy and the University of Louisville, where Nathan received his Master of Music degree in May 2007.
Nathan continues to reside in Louisville, Ky., teaches voice part-time at both Bellarmine University and the Louisville Academy of Music, and has recently sung professionally with Kentucky Opera, the Louisville Ballet, Musica Toscana, Amici Opera (Philadelphia), and the Concert Chorale of Nashville.
Nathan also continues to be involved in the newspaper business: his day job as a Field Verification Representative in the circulation department at the Louisville Courier-Journal keeps him busy four mornings a week. He hopes to give a recital this summer in his hometown of Corning, N.Y., about an hour from Ithaca. More about Nathan can be found at www.nathanwilsonbass.com
