C-SC Opera Workshop brings chamber opera to community, campus
Tuesday, November 29, 2011
CANTON, Mo. -- On Dec. 11 at 3 p.m. and Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m., Culver-Stockton Opera Workshop renews its commitment to bringing chamber opera to the public with performances at Merillat Hall inside the Robert W. Brown Performing Arts Center on campus. Workshop singers will also travel to regional elementary schools in the following week to perform as opera outreach.
For nearly a century, Culver-Stockton’s Opera Workshop has opened a window to the utter delight and artistic satisfaction that comes from the rigorous musical discipline required of this most formal end of the musical theatre spectrum. This year’s performances will consider Romantic and 20th century practices in the beautiful reconciliation scene from Bizet’s “Pearl-Fishers” contrasted with all five miniature operas in Ned Rorem’s “Fables.”
The workshop will feature student performances by Tanner Mathes, freshman music education major from Kirksville, Mo.; Josh Kollitz, sophomore music major from Grant City, Mo.; Hannah Kauffmann, junior music education major from Festus, Mo.; Kirsten Sindelar, junior musical theatre major from Sherrard, Ill.; Julie Hoadley, freshman music education major from Palatine, Ill.; and Chris Baker, sophomore music education major from Novinger, Mo.
Performances are part of the Division of Fine Arts contribution to the college’s Academic and Cultural Affairs programming. For further information, call the Fine Arts Office at (573) 288-6346. Culver-Stockton College is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
