Come & Support Kurt Lichtmann ’82 at the Lichtmann Vocal Concert on Dec. 16th @ 7pm!

Hello Honorites!

The Lichtmann Vocal Concert will be held on December 16th from 7pm – 8:15pm at the Hockett Recital Hall!


I.C. Alum Kurt Lichtmann presents a fun & entertaining 80 minute concert of Italian (Neapolitan), German, Spanish, classical, pop, some opera, some folk, a lot of great music that you pretty much never hear in Ithaca – and certainly not by a bass-baritone!

Some serious, some lighthearted, some sing-a-longs, and some intense theatrical emotional meatgrinders! Fiesta of styles and tone colors, with interesting and amusing commentaries! You will be entertained! FREE PIZZA RECEPTION TO FOLLOW.

Kurt earned his Masters Degree in Music at Ithaca College, M.M. Ed. Voice/Piano, long, long ago in 1982. Since then, he has sung on the stages of school auditoriums, and smoky country bars, well over a thousand times. And now… he’s back, with great gratitude to his current fabulous vocal coach Imogen Mills (I.C. Music Ed/Voice Class of 2018), as well as his former I.C. voice teachers, the legendary Leslie Bennett, and Roland Bentley.

His other I.C. music professors read like a Who’s Who of the luminous and venerated: Mary Arlin, Dave Riley, Dana Wilson, Ron Regal, Liz Regal, Marge Porterfield, Jim Porterfield, Larry Doebler, Gary Brodhead, Ed Swenson, and more. Were they here today, they would undoubtedly join in unison, “Don’t blame us! He went his own way!”
