Celebrated tenor Anthony Dean Griffey will teach at UNC

Big news for Carolina music students: Two-time Grammy Award-winning tenor Anthony Dean Griffey will teach master music classes and one-on-one voice coaching sessions as UNC Artist-in-Residence during the coming academic year. Two of the master classes will be open for the public to attend. Click here for details.

Griffey, a native of High Point, recently discussed his life and career, with Jessica Jones on WUNC-FM radio. He recalled growing up the shy child of furniture workers who first sang in the Baptist church choir. One of his former teachers remembers having to push him out on stage, but when he sang “The Impossible Dream,” the highschool audience gave him a standing ovation.

Listen to the interview, including discussions of his life in North Carolina and New York, his career as an opera and concert star, and his comments when he won two Grammy’s earlier this year.
