We are beginning our second season of “Concerts on the Canal” at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke, MA. This concert will feature the music of the Belle Époque – the vibrant artistic scene that flourished between 1885-WWI in Paris. I will be joined by pianist Deborah Gilwood for songs by Debussy, Hahn, Fauré, and Satie. In addition to the musical performance, we will have visual projections to help discuss the artwork, poets, writers, and other colorful characters of the era. Free and open to the public; donations gratefully accepted. Come early and have lunch in the delicious restaurant on the premises!

I am thrilled to be performing in Jocelyn Hagen and Penelope Freeh’s Test Pilot. This extraordinary dance opera presents the accomplishments of the Wright brothers through the lens of their sister, Katherine. Performed by a string quartet, a male quintet, soprano soloist, and four dancers, the multi-media event also includes stunning visual projections and sound technology to bring the ideas and emotions to life.

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.

In the second performance of our new series, Alice Jones and I will perform selections for voice and flute. The program covers a wide range of expression and features the music of John Corigliano, Ines Thiebaut, Albert Roussel, Eric Nathan, and Bun-Ching Lam. 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!
