Austin Opera is proud to showcase our beloved longtime collaborator and rehearsal pianist Nyle Matsuoka, who was recently called upon to step in during our return to live performance when the weather at Circuit of the Americas kept our Tosca orchestra at bay. You may also recognize Nyle from his performances alongside many LIT artists during past episodes, as well as in his former role as our Principal Coach and Pianist, playing at many Austin Opera events and for numerous educational outings in our public schools.

Today, we celebrate him in performance! Enjoy selections from his performance of Tosca, our cinematic Lauren + Mark Digital Concert Event, and his solo recital, recorded just about a year ago.

We could not be more grateful for his dynamic and indispensable contributions to our artistic success.

This episode is part of our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. We hope you’ll tune in Friday, May 21 at 3:00 p.m.!
