Mr. Diaz-Moresco is active on both recital and operatic stages and has been garnering praise for his comic flair and resonant baritone.

Diaz-Moresco holds music degrees from the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music.
An enthusiastic supporter of the education of young musicians, Spencer Myer is well known to northeast Ohio audiences. He studied at Oberlin College Conservatory and The Juilliard School, and received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stony Brook University in 2005. He has served on the faculties of conservatories at Baldwin Wallace University and Oberlin College. Since his time in Ohio, Mr. Myer has become known as one of the most important American artists of his generation, having reaped critical acclaim from around the world. He has won numerous international prizes and competitions and has recorded on the Harmonia Mundi and Naxos labels. In 2016, Spencer Myer’s latest recording will be released on the Steinway & Sons label.
The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Monday evening in the outstanding acoustical environment of West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, 20401 Hilliard Boulevard, Rocky River.
