In Concert The World Renown Victor Trent Cook, Rodrick Dixon and Thomas Young Musical Mix from Opera to Soul

Friday, February 10 through Sunday, February 12

Critically acclaimed tenors Victor Trent Cook, Rodrick Dixon, and Thomas Young delight audiences with a singular musical mix that easily bridges opera to gospel, American songbook standards to soul, and everything in between, from Handel to Ellington and beyond. This trio of talented, ultra-versatile singers, known as Cook, Dixon & Young, take your spirit, body and mind on a fantastic, memorable and awe-inspiring musical journey through the worlds of opera, Broadway, jazz, blues, soul, spiritual, gospel and spoken word. These concerts are the culmination of over 15 years of a creative association of George Faison with Cook, Dixon & Young.
Victor Cook began singing at age three and continued as boy soprano soloist with renowned conductors such as James Levine and Seiji Ozawa, and performing in the world’s most famous venues, such as The White House, Carnegie Hall, and the John F. Kennedy Center. He also competed on “Star Search,” where he was named Star Search 1998 “$100,000 Male Vocal Champion!” He won roles on various soaps, including All My Children and made guest appearances on The Arsenio Hall Show, the Today Show and the Rosie O’Donnell Show. On Broadway he starred in such Smokey Joe’s CafĂ©, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award.
Rodrick Dixon’s dramatic stage presence and stunning vocal qualities have established him as one of the rising stars in opera, contemporary opera, oratorio, concerts and recitals. In 2009, Mr. Dixon made his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut as Oedipus Rex.
In 2008 for the Los Angeles Opera and Philadelphia Orchestra, he delivered a powerfully gripping performance as the Dwarf in the opera Der Zwerg conducted by James Conlon. Opera News considered his portrayal of the Dwarf a triumph! In the spring and summer of 08’ at the Cincinnati May Festival, he performed the Beethoven 9th. He recently headlined the December Opera Is Hot Series at the Faison Firehouse.
Thomas Young, a Grammy-award winning lyric tenor, has appeared as a principal soloist in the major concert halls and opera houses of some 30 countries, and under the baton of, among others, Zubin Mehta, Roger Norrington, Simon Rattle, and Esa-Pekka Salonen. In addition to his distinguished performance career, Mr. Young serves as a tenured Professor of Music at Sarah Lawrence College and is in demand as a conductor, clinician and master class specialist.
