Spotlight on Chaz'men Williams-Ali: A Celebratory Evening with Florentine Opera

Join us in applauding Chaz’men Williams-Ali for his dedication to the arts and for bringing such unique musical experiences to opera lovers.

Arbour Artists is thrilled to share insights from tenor Chaz’men Williams-Ali’s recent Spotlight engagement with Florentine Opera, where he captivated an intimate audience with his performance. “I had a wonderful time performing, made even more special by the fact that my collaborator was none other than my extremely talented wife and the new Head of Music at Florentine, Aurelia Andrews,” Chaz remarked.

The evening’s repertoire was rich and diverse, featuring beloved arias by Strauss, Puccini, Bizet, and more. A highlight was Chaz’men’s presentation of rare Leoncavallo songs, a project close to his heart, which he rediscovered after years of searching. “I presented the first five in what I am planning to be a full program of Leoncavallo. It was very exciting,” he shared.

This Spotlight event not only showcased Chaz’s vocal prowess but also his passion for bringing lesser-known works to the forefront, creating a deeply personal and memorable musical experience. Chaz also opened in Florentine Opera’s production of La Boheme on April 19,2024.
