A Cortland native who is an operatic baritone will sing with the W.D. Packard Concert Band at its next performance.
Michael Young won first place in the Palm Beach Opera Vocal Competition and is a two-time winner of the Corbett Vocal Competition. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music and has performed with Cincinnati Opera and Dayton Opera. Last year he came home to sing one of the lead roles in Opera Western Reserve's production of ''Tosca'' at Stambaugh Auditorium.
With the Packard Band, Young will sing the ''Toreador Song'' from Bizet's ''Carmen,'' ''Romance'' from Massenet's ''Herodiade'' and ''Some Enchanted Evening'' from the musical ''South Pacific.''
Guest conductor Stephen L. Gage will lead the band in a concert that also will include John Williams' ''Olympic Fanfare and Theme,'' Leonard Bernstein's ''Candide'' Suite and tributes to the music of Irving Berlin and Henry Mancini.
The concert starts at 3 p.m. Sunday at Packard Music Hall, 1703 Mahoning Ave. N.W., Warren. Admission is free, and funding is provided by the W.D. Packard Trust.
Following the concert will be a reception to honor long-time conductor Donald W. Byo, who retired last month.
Those attending the concert are invited to stay for the reception, which will be held in the Packard lobby.
