Love TRULY MADLY DEEPLY for Valentine’s Day
Posted on February 7, 2013 by Christopher Thrall
What do 50 Shades of Grey, the Augustana Vocal Department and Valentine’s Day have in common?
The first half of the show presents a drama in which six aging women from the DO-RE-MI-FA-SOL-LA Book Club (in reality all students of vocal performance in Professor Kathleen Corcoran’s studio) will collectively ponder and pine, cajole and reflect: they must find clarity on this elusive LOVE! The boundaries of traditional art song presentation will be shattered as songs of Purcell, Britten, Copland, Bernstein, and others inspire and enrich the drama.
The second half of the show features our students of today as stars of tomorrow, along with Roger Admiral (pianist) in a fully-frocked presentation of exquisite solo arias from Figaro, Mefistofeles, Rigoletto, Bartered Bride, Boheme and more.
This evening promises some surprises, laughter, poignancy and sophistication as a musical presentation of love in song and aria just in time for Valentine’s Day.
You are invited to this special event beginning at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, February 12th in the Augustana Faith & Life Chapel – a cultured and entertaining Valentine date idea! Tickets, available at the door, are $10 (adults), $7 (students/seniors). For further information, call the Augustana Music Office (780-679-1532).
