The winter concert of the Hudson Valley Chorale on Sunday, January 15, 2012, at 3:00 p.m. will be filled with favorite operas, operettas and Broadway hits.
Under the baton of its newly appointed Music Director, the renowned Jason Tramm, the Chorale will perform several opera choruses by Verdi and Donizetti, including the “Brindisi” from La Traviata, the “Anvil Chorus” from Il Trovatore and the “Chorus of the Wedding Guests” from Lucia di Lammermoor. Selections from Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado and H.M.S Pinafore will fill the second set, and a medley from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, a Sondheim piece and a collaborative Bernstein/Sondheim effort will complete the final set.
Appearing as soloists with the Hudson Valley Chorale in this concert will be the rising young soprano, Christina Major, hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as a “fascinating and hugely talented singer,” and tenor, Jeremy Blossey, described by Micartists as an “emerging bright talent on both the opera and concert stages.”
The audience can well expect a truly exciting musical afternoon filled with outstanding performances of great repertoire.
Light refreshments will be served following the concert.
