Both have performed extensively in the U.S. and abroad, but Howle said there is something special about a debut at Carnegie Hall.

“Every performer dreams of performing at Carnegie Hall,” Howle said, “so to make my recital debut there is really the culmination of my work as a solo vocalist.”

Howle, a baritone, teaches voice and opera and directs the PSU Voice and Opera Workshop. Natenberg is an associate professor of piano at PSU and was a recipient of the 2012 Excellence in Teaching Award from PSU’s College of Arts and Sciences.
