Ronan Tynan, a member of the Irish Tenors who sang “Amazing Grace” at Ronald Reagan’s funeral and has performed “God Bless America” many times in Yankee Stadium, was an artist-in-residence in the music department October 26–29. In addition to offering undergraduates private vocal lessons, he taught two masterclasses in Gasson 100. On October 26, he coached Andrew Hammond ’18, a baritone who chose to sing “Warm as the Autumn Light” (from the 1956 Douglas Moore opera The Ballad of Baby Doe), and soprano Ana Tablada ’16, who sang “O Mio Babbino Caro” (from the 1918 Giacomo Puccini opera Gianni Schicchi). Tynan’s longtime accompanist Billy Lewis played piano.
