The Annual Levine Lecture: An Evening of Opera Honoring Legendary Tenor Richard Tucker

 Registration is closed for this event

David N. Tucker, M.D., son of the legendary tenor Richard Tucker,

and James A. Drake, Ph.D., President Emeritus of Brevard Community College

and authorized biographer of Richard Tucker (foreword written by Luciano Pavarotti),

will narrate a video presentation of the life story

of Richard Tucker as a man, a father, and a singer.


The program, which will feature recordings of the legendary opera singer and reflections on his personal and professional life, will be narrated by his son, Dr. David N. Tucker, and James A. Drake, biographer of Richard Tucker.

Richard Tucker was born on August 28, 1913, in Brooklyn, New York—two years after his parents emigrated to the United State from Bessarabia. Even as a child, Tucker’s singing drew praise. Prior to appearing on the operatic stage, Richard Tucker sang in many New York congregations as a cantor. Even after he became an international star and a fixture on the Metropolitan Opera stage, Tucker continued to perform as a cantor throughout his career.

This extraordinary presentation will take place at Shir Hadash and is free of charge and open to all. Invite your opera-loving friends and family for an exciting evening!
