Both men also praised the work Zambello does with young artists.
“Francesca has been amazing in trying to help the next generation of artists,” said Hourie.
Hourie and Teague expressed enthusiasm about today’s program at Woodside Hall.
“We’re going to try to create an excitement that we’re embracing the local community,” said Hourie. “I love to see how my work resonates with an audience.”
Neither Teague nor Hourie have done an educational program like this with the Glimmerglass Festival before.
“I’m really excited about it,” said Teague.
Hourie also said that he expects members and patrons of Syracuse Stage, whom he has worked with in the past, will come to watch the program.
The program will be at Woodside Hall today at 6:30 p.m. Although the program is free, reservations are requested, but not necessary. They can be made by calling 373-7817.
