They want to be a part of it — New York, New York — and they are. Alums from the School of Music perform on stage in major opera companies, musical theater productions and with world-class ensembles around the globe.

Coming soon:
  • Liam Bonner (A’03) makes his Metropolitan Opera debut in the February production of "Carmen."
  • Jeffrey Behrens (A’03) makes his debut with the Met in its March 2010 production of Shostakovich's The Nose (Die Nase).
Already stealing the show:
  • Graham Fenton (A'05) is singing the Frankie Valli role in "Jersey Boys."
  • Patricia Phillips (A'85) is starring as Carlotta in "The Phantom of the Opera."
  • Christiane Noll (A'90) has received accolades for her performance in the revival of "Ragtime," which opened in November 2009 and closed with a final performance on January 10, 2010.
  • Catherine Walker (A'01) is a member of the Ragtime cast.
And it’s not just School of Music alumni making their mark on stage. Many School of Drama alums are also performing on Broadway. One dramat — Kyle Beltran (A'09) — is in Pittsburgh this week as star of the Broadway musical "In the Heights," which is touring nationally.
