Here Are Some of Dolly's Recent Radio Programs

Sunday March 17 - Live from WPKN studios - Tom Zimmerman

It's Opera 101 with program hosts
Dolly Curtis and Joseph Koches who will Interview Tom Zimerman. Mr. Zimmerman is a singer and vocal coach who has prepared an exceptional program all about the art of Opera.

Tom Zimmerman has been singing professionally for most of his life. Tom won a full scholarship for the Carnegie Mellon Institute’s Opera Performance Master’s program followed by an apprenticeship with Tri-cities Opera. Eventually, he moved to NYC where he sang with the Metropolitan Opera for four seasons, adding appearances with the Opera Orchestra of New York, and New York Grand Opera in his spare time.

Desiring more fun than opera provides, Tom founded the “What the Dickens Christmas Carolers,” a dramatic choral ensemble featuring choreographed presentations (staged by Tom), which is being revived in Connecticut as the “What the Dickens Caroliers” presenting music for a “Victorian Tea” and the “Cat’s Meow.”

This versatile singing actors’ resume includes roles as varied as Emile de Becque in “South Pacific,” Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” and the (mute!) King Sextimus in “Once Upon a Mattress” performed with regional music theater companies and roles in several dramas at theater festivals throughout the USA. Tom even worked off-Broadway in a spooky melodrama by esteemed Andy Warhol playwright Ronald Tavel. In December, 2003, Tom acted, sang and prepared and conducted the musical portions of the Fairfield Trinity Players simulated 1948 radio broadcast “Christmas on the Air.”

Indulging his penchant for portraying comedic villains, Tom appeared as Sir Despard Murgatroyd in Troupers’ 2003 production of “Ruddigore.” In past Troupers’ productions, Tom minueted as Sir Joseph Porter in “H.M.S. Pinafore;” exploded onstage as (a gleefully depraved) Wilfred Shadbolt, in “Yeoman of the Guard;” commandeered the stage as a Mephistophelean Grand Inquisitor in “The Gondoliers;” danced as the addled Sergeant of Police in “Pirates of Penzance.” He waddled around the stage as a very self aggrandizing Pooh Bah (a pompous politician) in Light Opera 2Go’s “The Mikado.” In 2002, Tom sang solos, duets and trios in a G&S evening with the Fairfield Chorale and Amor Artis Orchestra at the Norwalk Concert Hall.
