March 2023 - Button-Down Opera Project - Take 2: Don Giovanni
Plans are moving ahead for the Project's next venture, a performance of Mozart's dark masterpiece. This performance will feature new faces joining our wonderful core of artists, a bigger venue, and fuller orchestration. Stay tuned for more details!
Strauss a Success!
A career high-point was the performance in March of Strauss's Four Last Songs with the FSO and the magnificent soprano Francesca Aguado. After weeks of rehearsing and preparation, including two sessions with New York coach Steven Crawford, both Francesca and the orchestra put in exceptional performances. My gratitude to Maestro Glenn Quader for entrusting the orchestra with my baton. Recording coming soon to the Media page!
Successful return in July 2022!
Our Sky Stage performance in once again drew a large and enthusiastic audience. Featured on the program were Haydn's Sturm und Drang Symphony No. 78 in C minor and the premier of a new work by the FSO's own Robert Renshaw, Symphony Fantastick, a symphonic arrangement of numbers from the longest-running musical in history, The Fantasticks.
