Lucas Meachem | Classical Post Podcast

[NEW PODCAST] Grammy Award-winning baritone Lucas Meachem just released his first-ever solo album called Shall We Gather. It's a collection of American art songs that celebrate resilience and togetherness. His wife, Irina, the dynamic collaborative pianist, joins him on this album.

For those of you who might not know, Lucas Meachem is one of the most in-demand opera singers right now. He opens this season at LA Opera in Tannhaüser, then later appears at The Metropolitan Opera in La Bohème, followed by London's Royal Opera House in Madama Butterfly. It's certainly one of those high-gloss, jet-set lives, but he's so down to earth.

Both Irina and Lucas join us on the Classical Post podcast today where we discuss the profound questions that their album poses. For example, it makes you question: Should we connect? Should we physically be together? Should we be distanced?

As Irina points out, music is here to heal and to inspire. As the performing arts continue to return and gain traction again with larger audiences around the world, this album is a poignant milestone to contemplate. It's a type of cathartic unpacking of the turbulent period we all just experienced.
