Given the venues that Daniel Emmet is used to performing in, Severance Music Center must have felt like quite the culture shock. The classical crossover vocalist, a 2018 finalist on America’s Got Talent, has entertained crowds at places like Caesars Palace, Staples Center, and Angels Stadium. But that didn’t mean that Emmet was any less excited for his appearance on November 5 — quite the contrary.
“Hello, Cleveland!” he announced with a wide grin. “I’ve been waiting many years to say that.” Together with the Cleveland Pops Orchestra, the operatically-trained tenor delivered a memorable, genre-crossing evening of music.
