Norwegian vocalist Aksel Rykkvin has been acclaimed as "the world's premier treble." Hear the 14-year-old YouTube sensation sing in his North American debut. Also joining the presentation will be Marianne Lewis, Aksel’s voice coach, and Sean Lewis, collaborative pianist and producer of Aksel's recordings. You'll also learn how he and his voice coach have worked to propel his career.

Aksel’s first main stage opera role was dubbed “freakishly good” by the Financial Times and his debut recording with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was awarded the coveted Diapason d’Or Découverte. In August 2017, he was invited to sing and be interviewed together with his voice teacher at the closing presentation of the International Congress of Voice Teachers in Stockholm. WATCH VIDEO
