The Belrose Dup Concert on Saturday 5/10 at 4pm at FUMC Pasadena

May 8, 2014

The next Music at First Church program is coming up this Saturday, May 10 at 4:00pm. All of the works on the program are opera related and run the gamut from the touchingly pretty and sentimental (Massanet’s “Meditation” from Thais) to the uproariously virtuosic and humorous (Castelnueno-Tedesco’s “Figaro.”) This program includes my solos on Wagner – Liszt and Verdi – Liszt. Totally the OPERA! Laughing and Crying! Love and Crazy!

 Donations from this concert will go towards much needed choir robes. (By someday getting new choir robes we’ll save money on duct tape and safety pins?) Even if you can’t go to the concert please consider making a donation to the robes fund. I understand that for a $100 donation a new robe will be designated in the donor’s name. I hope that you will come to the concert on May 10 and perhaps invite a music-loving friend as well.
