Opera legend Sherrill Milnes keeps a quieter profile in Palm Harbor
“For nearly 40 years, he was one of the world’s best known opera singers. If Luciano Pavarotti was the tenor, Milnes was the baritone.
He and his wife have lived in Palm Harbor since 2005, when family and opera projects brought them. He’s a teacher now, content to guide young singers toward the kind of finesse he has honed. He’ll host an event tonight in Tarpon Springs, An Evening With Sherrill Milnes and the Ghosts of the Savannah. His festival wraps up Sunday.
Here, Milnes moves about without the glamor of his former life. He and his wife do crossword puzzles and take cruises. They sing Christmas songs at an annual pageant.
But people who know opera know Milnes.”
