Baritone Rod Gilfry and his daughter Carin Gilfry will be featured on Dick Gordon’s NPR show, The Story, this evening.  

The father/daughter duo discuss how performing has become a family business.  Part of their conversation focuses on Glimmerglass Artistic & General Director Francesca Zambello’s 1994 production of Billy Budd in Geneva, Switzerland, which featured Rod in the title role.

Rod will sing Frank Butler in Glimmerglass’s summer production of Annie Get Your Gun.

    Just heard the show while driving home and at the end when they sang an excerpt from “Oh Shining Night” (I think that was the title), I sat at a stop light with my mouth open.
    I think the lady in the car next to me saw me say “Oh…My…God…” as I looked at the radio. I’m sure she wondered what I was listening to and I wish I could have rolled down the window and said, “This is so so beautiful…”
    Had I been at home, it would have been a “driveway moment”, for sure.
    Thanks for the great Story.
