From Megan Roth's July 2 concert with Elizabeth Blood on piano
Marc DeMille, our baritone soloist, has a range far beyond church hymns and Gregorian chants.
With his long-time friend and accompanist, Michael Olbash, he put together a fine collection
of favorite songs in The Great American Songbook on February 27, 2010... listen in to Gershwin.
( Marc was first up while I was still figuring out recording methods.. next year I'll be better! )
Megan Roth, our mezzo-soprano soloist, can also do a mean cabaret set in German.
Here she is (in English) with her piano accompanist, Jennifer Douville, in Bolcom's Amor
She looks every bit the part.
Kevin Hayden, our tenor soloist, decided to bring five friends with him for his recital.
Julia Teitel, mezzo-soprano, accompanies him here in Benjamin Britten's Canticle II: Abraham and Issac
Together they sing the Voice of God calling upon Abraham, while facing away from the audience.
It has a dramatic, ethereal effect very different from the expected.
Geraldine Boyer-Cussac is the pianist in all of these selections
Kevin continues with "something completely different"
from The Secret Garden, the 1991 musical with lyrics by Marsha Norman and music by Lucy Simon.
10-year-old Mary comes to England to live with her cousin Colin and her uncles Archibald and Neville
after her mother dies of cholera in India. Archibald still grieves for his late wife Lily, Mary's aunt.
Here Archibald sings a fairy tale, an allegory about Archi and Lily,
to his sleeping son, Colin, explaining why, in his grief, Archi must leave.
Archi has visions of Lily, here sung by soprano Jennifer Rizzo
Archi's brother Neville, sung by bass-baritone Ulysses Thomas,
also grieves for Lily... in his unrequited love for her.
They both see the family resemblance in Mary's hazel eyes.
You can hear why the show ran on Broadway for 709 performances.
