Frances Henry, president of the Toronto Wagner Society interviewed Issachah Savage at a special meeting of the group Tuesday. “It was a wonderful session. TWS members loved the warm and humble personality of Mr. Savage”, said Joseph So who attended. Many had heard Mr. Savage in the two performances of Siegmund he sang at the COC Walkure.
“The moment Savage started to sing, our collective jaw dropped. It was clear that this was a major voice.”
“In the world of opera, good tenors are always in short supply. Unlike the baritone voice which is in the range of the typical male speaking voice, the tenor voice is like a high-wire act, singing up to a high C and beyond.
