Premiere Concert of the Ars Longa Quire – A Generous Gift of Celebration in Song

Posted March 17, 2013 by Ellen Gilmer

The premiere concert of the Ars Longa Quire at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Huntington, Long Island, NY, at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, January 13th, 2013, was a beautifully presented and performed program of uniquely combined choral selections. At once in contrast to and complementary of one another, the vocal works included revealed the individual expertise of each singer as well as a subtly refined precision of vocal blending and tonal quality unity. At times, the lilting swell of the glorious choral mix rose to fill the sanctuary, reverberating from the distant architectural heights of the arched English Gothic style ceiling above. Whenever called for by the music, however, the choir members joined to produce a concise, singular note in perfect unison and expertly achieved sotto voce.

Posted March 17, 2013 by Ellen Gilmer

This season’s Metropolitan Opera production of Gaetano Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore is a dynamic and dazzling combination of vocal splendor, bright and engaging acting and compelling staging. With the brilliant and unparalleled principal cast of Anna Netrebko as Adina, the farm owner and great beauty; Matthew Polenzani as Nemorino, a youthful villager; Mariusz Kwiecien as Sergeant Belcore; and Erwin Schrott as Doctor Dulcamara, this production is the epitome of the impassioned, yet effervescent and lighthearted comedic opera Donizetti and librettist Felice Romani intended it to be.
