WinterSong: An Evening with Bel Canto and Friends, is this Friday at 6 p.m. in Nichols Hall. The Harker community is welcome and there is no admission fee and no ticket needed.
The show features the upper school choir Bel Canto, who, in addition to a wide range of genres, will be presenting their most ambitious work ever: a five-song cycle by living composer Eric Whitacre, with Hebrew lyrics by Whitacre’s Israeli wife, Hila Plitmann.
In addition, eight Conservatory Certificate candidates are performing solos. Two are piano pieces, one of which is a Baroque-style suite written by the student; vocal pieces include art songs and works from musical theater and opera.
