Bass-baritone Nicholas Isherwood is a true maverick, a unique artist in both early music and contemporary works who has distinguished himself as a vocalist, composer, director, scholar, author and more. Born in the US, he is currently based in Germany, so we see him too rarely in these parts. But he’ll be in SoCal this month, with two standout concerts that you won’t want to miss. Grab your tickets while they last.
