How do you get to Carnegie Hall?
Ok, ok – oldest joke in the book but I couldn’t resist. It’s been over a year since I sang with the Collegiate Chorale, but I’m back and loving it more than ever. We’re kicking off the season on Wednesday, November 6th at Carnegie Hall, with a performance of Arrigo Boito’s Mefistofele. Perfectly timed for just after the spookiest of holidays, this un-staged opera is all about selling your soul to the devil just to get the girl. Stuff of legends, I’m tellin’ ya.
In all seriousness, this rarely-performed piece will send chills down your spine and melt your heart. Lead by Maestro James Bagwell, and starring Eric Owens, Julianna Di Giacomo, and Arturo Chacón-Cruz, the Collegiate Chorale, American Symphony Orchestra, and Manhattan Girls Chorus brings you the classic story of Faust in a most haunting and powerful rendition.
