Upcoming Barihunk Concerts of Interest: Christopher Temporelli and Markus Beam

Christopher Temporelli
On October 16, Christopher Temporelli performs at the Chamber Music Society in Pusan, Korea in a concert dubbed "Enchanting Low Voice, Christopher Temporelli." We couldn't agree more with the title.

If Korea is too far off the beaten path, he returns to New York City on October 8th to perform at the 2012 Columbus Day Parade Gala and then to perform live from the parade’s red carpet, singing Verdi's ‘O tu Palermo’ from Don Carlos, which will be broadcast on ABC and international affiliates. This year, the Parade will be marching up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street.

As we've mentioned previously, he makes his Michigan Opera Theater debut in the role of Achille in Handel’'s Giulio Cesare on November 10th with David Daniels in the title role.Temporelli will be appearing in the 2013 Barihunks calendar, which is slated for release in early October.

Markus Beam

North Carolina appears to be more than a swing state in this year's Presidential election, it seems it's become a cultural hub. We've had a disproportionate amount of barihunks news coming out of the Tar Heal State, with the latest being a recital by Markus Beam.

On Sunday, October 7th, Beam will sing selections from opera, song and musical theater at the Cultural Center in Lincolnton, which is in the old First Baptist Church. It's being produced by the Lincoln County Concert Association and tickets are only $20. Lincolnton is less than an hour from Charlotte and we assure you that it will be well worth the drive. For additional information or tickets call (704) 732-9066 or email


  1. I would absolutely LOVE to hear Markus again! For anyone in the NC area of Lincolnton, give your ears a special treat and go to hear this absolutely fabulous baritone!!!!!! He is far more than "just another barihunk!" He has a marvelous rich mellow tone and is a true performer with the additional gift of incredible comic timing! Go hear him and see for yourself!

  2. Markus Beam is a wonderful talent! This project received support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. Thanks for supporting the Arts and amazing artists like Markus Beam!
