Parade of stars at the Richard Tucker Gala 2016

On October 30th the Carnegie Hall in New York hosted the Richard Tucker Music Foundation Gala. The concert, conducted by Asher Fisch, was attended by many opera stars. Many of the attendees were previously awarded by the Tucker Foundation – Joyce DiDonato, Renée Fleming, Lawrence Brownlee, Jamie Barton and the winner of the 2016 Richard Tucker Award, Tamara Wilson, a rising star of worldwide lyric opera. The American mezzo-soprano chose two custom-made outfits. The first was a green-myrtle gown with draped fit at the bust and black lace insert embroidered with sequins on one side; lace sleeves too. The second was draped pink silk satin gown with boat neckline and the black border.
