Our new season got off to a lively start with our annual PRESIDENT'S COFFEE at the Junior League of Houston on October 1, 2019! Following the delicious spread by the chefs at the Junior League, we learned of all the wonderful events planned for the season. Then came the entertainment...
Lyric-coloratura soprano Alicia Chew was accompanied by pianist Clayton Roberts in a very moving performance of Bach Cantata 51, Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen. Alicia then changed gears (and costumes) and was joined by two more "witches" for some rollicking-fun trios, setting the mood for Halloween with dramatic and amusing musical interpretations of Macbeth's witches' dialogues. The singing witches were mezzo-sopranos Christy Larimer-Compson and guest, KeiCee Newton. "Witch" pianists were Janice Van Derbur and Cynthia Blackwell.
If this was a preview, the new season is going to be truly exciting! Do join us at our regular programs - and invite friends.
