If you weren’t lucky enough to catch Shoshana Bean at Encores! last year, remedy it NOW. You’ll be so glad you did. This woman is a powerhouse and ‘Just One Step’ from Jason Robert Brown’s Songs For A New World is the perfect vehicle for her unbounded, fearless artistry. I have pressed REPEAT on this one many, many times.

Hailed by The New York Times as “radiant,” Irish mezzo-soprano Naomi Louisa O’Connell deftly balances her love of opera with that of art song, musical theater and popular song with repertoire ranging from Schumann, Strauss and Ravel to Bernstein, Gershwin and Randy Newman. An alumna of the NYFOS@Juilliard residency, Naomi returns to NYFOS this week in Lyrics by Shakespeare on Wednesday, October 16 at Merkin Hall. To follow Naomi on Facebook, click here.
