“George Komsky remembers how determined he was during his first couple of years in college to practice singing opera. Unable to do so at his university dorm, Komsky drove to a campus parking garage at 1 a.m., put on an opera CD, sat on a chair by his car door and — not to be deterred by occasional passers-by who were yelling at him to keep quiet — Komsky sang his heart out. "That was really the only way I could practice, freshman and sophomore year," he said. "I was singing in a garage imagining I was performing in front of an audience." ”

“George Komsky’s golden light tenor voice won him a coveted vocal scholarship to UCLA and after graduation; he toured with the prestigious Irish sensational production of Riverdance as lead soloist, sang with the Twelve Irish Tenors, and was a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent in 2006. Judge Piers Morgan added; “he was the best male-vocalist in the show,” Seth Riggs, the legendary vocal coach of Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole, Michael Jackson and Josh Groban predicted of Komsky, his protégé and star pupil, “George will be the next Andrea Bocelli.” The twenty-four year old tenor, George Komsky, born in Kiev in 1985, schooled in Danville and Los Angeles, is truly blessed with a beautiful golden voice and who may very well be the next Andrea Bocelli.”

“George Komsky isn’t your typical 24-year-old. At an age when most people are just starting their careers, this Danville native has already made a name for himself as an established opera tenor, having toured North America as the lead soloist with world renowned Irish dancing group, Riverdance, and garnered popular buzz when he reached the semifinals on the hit TV show America’s Got Talent (lead judge Piers Morgan called him the finest male singer in the competition). On March 19th, Komsky will return to the East Bay for his very first solo performance at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts.”
