On Saturday, June 8th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, June 9th at 3:00 pm, MUSE presents her 30th Anniversary Concerts and will honor the voices that have carried MUSE on a 30-year journey of musical excellence and social change. Dr. Catherine Roma, founder and director, will be retiring at the end of this season and these are her final MUSE performances. Programming for this concert includes both new and timeless pieces as a retrospective of the past 30 years.
The concert program will include new MUSE commissions by Abbie Betinis, Elizabeth Alexander and Eric Lane Barnes. MUSE alums will join the stage for traditional MUSE favorites and the concert will end with a rousing medley of Aretha Franklin songs, newly commissioned for MUSE by Steve Milloy. This medley combines gospel and soul into an unforgettable experience sure to bring down the house!
Join MUSE for this once-in-a-lifetime concert experience and wish MUSE well as they “Carry On” into the next 30 years!
