SPOTLIGHT: Opera Singer Tanner Knight

Tenor Tanner Knight of Kessville, New York discusses his career in opera. The singer has performed in many shows across the country, but he says dwindling audiences due to the tough economy are forcing many opera companies to make cutbacks or even close. In spite of the tough times, we managed to talk about his love of music. He also sang for us, accompanied on the piano by Dr. Karen Becker. She is an associate professor at SUNY Plattsburgh.

This "Spotlight" airs on Mountain Lake Journal Extra Thursday night at 8:30 on Mountain Lake PBS. It repeats on Friday at 6am and 12:30pm, and Sunday at 10:30am.

"Spotlight" is brought to you, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park.
