Tesfa Wondemagegnehu

MinnPost is proud to announce the assistant artistic director of VocalEssence, Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, will be lending his powerful tenor vocals to a song parody in the show this year. Accompanying him on piano will be VocalEssence artistic director Philip Brunelle, along with four other singers from VocalEssence: Ryan French, Anders Eckman, Clara Osowski and Joanna Swantek. You can listen below to a clip of Wondemagegnehu performing “Ingemisco” from Verdi’s Messa da Requiem.

As a tenor soloist, he has performed all over the world under the batons of such conducting luminaries as André Thomas, Anton Armstrong, Krzysztof Penderecki, Rodney Eichenberger, Judy Bowers, Kevin Fenton, and Pu-Qi Jiang.

Wondemagegnehu will be joined on stage April 25 by Lizz Winstead, Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, Kim Crockett from the Center of the American Experiment, Dane Smith from Growth & Justice and more.
