In addition to her performance at the Richard Tucker Gala, Ailyn Pérez is featured in two additional concert events in December, presented in support of extraordinary arts education efforts in New York City. On December 12, she and tenor Brian Jagde, both Advisory Board members for Time In Kids, will sing “Puccini with Passion” to benefit Time In’s in-school and on-site programs. Pianist Bryan Wagorn accompanies the evening, which features arias and more from Puccini’s ever-popular canon. The benefit is hosted at the Tribeca apartment of Dana Tang and Andy Darrell; tickets and more info can be found via TimeInKids.org.
On December 14 Ms. Pérez joins the Young People’s Chorus of NYC for their annual “Winter Wonder” Holiday Concert at Carnegie Hall. She sings much-loved carols with the students on a night that celebrates international traditions and festive favorites. Ailyn previously volunteered with the YPC for their “Women Inspiring Tomorrow” conference in 2016, serving as a panelist for the event.
