Charles Fidlar Explores Walt Whitman’s Poetry

“What happens when you ‘hear’ a song while simultaneously reciting a poem?  How does the song’s rhythm and melodic contour effect poetic declamation?  Charles explores these questions through Walt Whitman’s poetry.”
Charles is a graduate of Cornell University (English/French); the New England Conservatory (conducting/voice); with doctoral studies at 
Stanford University (conducting /voice).  He is a former assistant conductor of the Grammy-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus; 
assistant conductor of the Rhode Island Philharmonic; artistic director of the Providence Opera Society, RI, and general manager/artistic director the Harford Theatre, Bel Air, MD where he produced and staged 12 operas.
A member of the Sandisfield Players, Charles lives in Norfolk, CT with his wife, Marilyn Davidson, and two cats, Bubbie and Nellie Battell Stoeckel.
