If you've never heard a countertenor sing, the first time can be a shock. And if your first countertenor happens to be Anthony Roth Costanzo, he's joyfully going to exploit that shock. "When I go into a room and people haven't heard a countertenor, and they think ‘What the hell is going on? Why is this guy singing like that?' I love that," he says. "I love using those 30 seconds of shock to bring people in and to make them really listen to what this music is." Well, the opportunity to lean in and really listen to Anthony Roth Costanzo on your own time has arrived, with his debut album ARC.

Costanzo makes his Celebrity Series of Boston debut on Wednesday, November 7 at the Longy School of Music of Bard College's Pickman Hall, and  The 2019 Musical America Vocalist of the Year speaks with WCRB: BOSTON - Chris Voss about his debut album, ARC. LISTEN
