Ethan Laird (Amahl, Friday & Sunday evening) is excited to be performing in his first opera as the title character in Amahl and the Night Visitors. An avid musician and singer, Ethan began his musical education with piano lessons at Third Street Music School. He later expanded his repertoire to include guitar, drums and vibraphone at the Boys Club of New York (Harriman Clubhouse). In 2010, Ethan joined the Boys Club of New York Chorus, where he blossomed into a featured singer, including a solo ukulele performance of “Count on Me” by Bruno Mars at the 2014 Board of Directors Annual Dinner and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” at the annual concert the same year. In the summer of 2014 Ethan performed in the 14th Street Y Summer Theater Intensive production of Hair and most recently completed a chorus intensive at the “Count Me In” Program at Carnegie Hall. Ethan currently attends the Institute for Collaborative Education where he participates in the Drama Program. In addition to acting and singing, he enjoys photography, film making and is a talented magician. Ethan would like to thank his family for their love, support and chauffeuring.

Lior Schwartz (Amahl, Thursday night and Sunday afternoon) is 11 years old and has spent most of his life singing. Since a very young age, he has studied voice at his grandmother’s Alla Schwartz Children Vocal Studio in Fair Lawn, NJ. Starting in Kindergarten, Lior regularly sang as a member of the choir and as a soloist with Temple Beth Sholom in New City, NY. He later joined the NY Children's Choir at Temple Sinai of Roslyn in Roslyn Heights, NY, where his parents Elena and Sergei Schwartz serve as Cantors. Recently, he debuted as a soloist with Temple Sinai’s professional choir, singing Leonard Bernstein’s Psalm 23, Chichester Psalms. Lior studies piano with Elena Kuzmenko and in 2015, he performed as a winner of the Royal Music Development Program at Carnegie Hall. Lior does not only enjoy music, but he is also a member of Island Fencing Academy team and Long Island Aquatic Club swimming team. He is a devoted soccer fan and an avid reader. Lior is proud to be the first United States born member of the Schwartz family, originally from the Former Soviet Union. He is very excited about his debut as Amahl with Opera Breve.

Today's Alum Spotlight: Caroline Tye, mezzo-soprano
The past year has brought on a lot of thrilling challenges for Caroline! She made her debut with Saint Petersburg Opera in Fall 2015 as Mercedes while covering the title role in CARMEN, performed the title role in Utopia Opera's DIDO AND AENEAS, and then had a spring filled with Cinderella: she debuted her first time performing the title role in Bronx Opera's production of LA CENERENTOLA, and then turned around to play the evil stepmother Madame de Haltière in Massanet's CENDRILLON! This summer gave her the opportunity to perform the title role in CARMEN with Delaware Valley Opera under the direction of Carol Castel, and this fall she looks forward to again playing the role of Mercedes in CARMEN, this time with Long Island Opera. Next year she officially becomes a crossover artist, returning to Saint Petersburg Opera to play The Baker's Wife in their musical theater production of INTO THE WOODS.
