It is always a pleasure to perform with the South Hadley Chorale under the direction of Jonathan Harvey. The program will feature Schubert’s Mass No.2 in G Major, John Corigliano’s Fern Hill, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ In Windsor Forest. I look forward to working with the other fine soloists: Mary Brown Bonacci, mezzo-soprano; Spencer Hamlin, tenor; and Ryan Burns, baritone.

This short concert will feature two pieces that are near and dear to my heart: Richard Strauss’ Ophelia Lieder and Gregory Brown’s Caliban in After-Life. I have sung the Ophelia Lieder many times and each time it is deeper, richer, and more heartbreaking. Caliban in After-Life was written for me by my husband and the extraordinary poem is by a friend of mine, Todd Hearon. The piece is a mini-opera in itself: dramatic, lyrical, and explosive. I am excited to be able to perform this concert with pianist Judith Gordon and violinist Joel Pitchon.

The performance will include projections of photography during the program which will add a new dimension to the music. As always at Gateway, wonderful brunch selections will be served! Come celebrate Valentine’s Day in style!

I am thrilled to be performing Haydn’s Creation with the South Hadley Chorale. This oratorio is one of my favorite pieces, and after being a member of the chorus many times, I am excited to be the soprano soloist. At Abbey Memorial Chapel at Mt. Holyoke College, with Jonathan Harvey, conductor.
