Dashon Burton: I Sing the Body Electric

”Sound out, voices of young men! loudly and musically call me by my nighest name! Play the old role, the role that is great or small according as one makes it!” Whitman’s verses still call to those crossing the East River, to “the similitudes of the past and those of the future.” Dashon Burton is among the addressees of that missive. The New Yorker has crossed the river countless times on route to play his role as deep-voiced ambassador of the Ode to Joy. Dashon, an internationally celebrated bass-baritone voice, will share his life and mission with us and even his vocal warm-up exercises. Welcome aboard the UR-Music & Arts ferry! Dashon: “Flood-tide below me! I see you face to face!”
