Claremont Courier — Nmon Ford, a graduate of Cal State San Bernardino, is coming home but, truth be told, he’s never left. After years of concerts around the world, the Pomona-bred opera star is performing two shows this weekend at Pomona College’s Bridges Hall of Music in Claremont.
“All the people who can’t normally hear me sing are like, ‘Oh wait: we can just go right up the street and it’s free?’” Indeed, both Little Bridges shows—8 p.m. tonight, Friday, April 14, and 3 p.m. Easter Sunday, April 16 — are free and open to the public.
As a youth, Mr. Ford attended St. Paul’s Lutheran, Claremont’s Foothill Country Day School, spent a year at Webb and two years at Damien, and graduated from Pomona High in the mid-1980s. He earned his bachelor’s degree in music and journalism, and then his master’s in music and arts administration from USC. He also holds a master’s in business administration from CSUSB.
