Come spend “A Night at the Opera”, featuring the students of today – stars of tomorrow! Singers from the studios of Kathleen Corcoran and Joy-Anne Murphy present an hour-long program of celebrated solo arias from operas by Mozart, Verdi, Copeland, Puccini, and Handel.
Each student will share an aria which has been assigned to develop not only vocal technique but also drama, character and expression. For students to work on these operatic gems is at once motivating and challenging – everyone enjoys a good story and these singers have worked to bring this story to you through engaging and beautiful musical presentations.
This evening promises rich emotion, comedy and poignancy as the students share their work in progress to full artistry. A special invitation is extended to those unfamiliar with opera – come experience, up-close-and-personal, the human stories and universal truths sung by young friends from your community!
The recital is Thursday, March 3rd at 7:00 pm in the Augustana Campus Faith & Life Chapel. Tickets may be purchased at the door ($12 adults; $10 seniors; $5 students). For further information, call the Augustana Fine Arts Office (ph. 780-679-1532).
