Daniel Rodriguez, of Rossville, came to symbolize the city’s post-9/11 resilience.
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Borough music aficionados will be presented with two tantalizing options to take in a performance tonight — and both are free.
The Metropolitan Opera Summer Recital Series comes to Clove Lakes Park, with soprano Layla Claire, mezzo-soprano Rene Tatum, and bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green, accompanied by pianist Bradley Moore. The concert begins at 7 p.m.
At 8 p.m., New York City’s famed “Singing Cop” Daniel Rodriguez will take the stage at the Music Hall at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden to headline the next installment of Borough President James P. Molinaro’s summer Starlight Concert Series.
Rodriguez, a tenor and Rossville resident, gained fame for his stirring renditions of patriotic songs after the Sept. 11 attacks.
