Artistry and Rivalry:
Jan Peerce and Richard Tucker
Paul Offenkrantz

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Jan Peerce (born Jacob Pincus Perelmuth) and Richard Tucker (born Reuben Ticker) were two of the greatest tenors of the 20th century. They were also brothers-in-law who couldn't stand each other! This program will compare and contrast the careers and artistry of these gentlemen and explore the complicated and strained relationship between them. Rare archival video footage will also be shown!
