Music in the Noon Hour

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.
