Dear friends of harp music,
as July approaches, I would like to invite you to the remaining concerts of the Hot Summer Nights festival.
Tomorrow at 7.30pm we are performing La Boheme – my favorite opera. We have a wonderful cast of lead singers. The singers are part of Resident Opera Artists program and 4 singers are chosen every summer to come to Columbia and take the leading roles in the opera production with the Missouri Symphony. Around 100 singers auditioned in New York and in Columbia when the auditions took place in March. We have additional roles covered by a great local singers and chorus. So do not let this opportunity to hear them slip by! Friday June 29th Missouri Theatre 7.30 pm.
Next performance is Silent Movie with live music on Sunday July 1st at 6.30pm – Missouri Theatre. There is no harp in that one, but it’s always amazing to watch how the music is synchronized to the  silent movie. It’s 3 short Charlie Chaplin movies this year.
Then on July 3th at 7.30pm our ever popular Patriotic Pops concert. Music of Americana and patriotic standards this bellowed concert always fills the hall to the brim. Our resident opera artists take part in this concert as well. ( Missouri Theatre)
On July 7th, my stepdaughter Chloe Trevor will come to perform Sibelius Violin concerto and the MSO will play Dvorak’s Symphony no.9! Chloe is an amazing concert violinist and Dvorak’s 9 is a classic!
( 7.30pm, Missouri Theatre )
Our final Pops concert is on July 13th, 7.30 pm, Missouri Theatre and is featuring Asleep at the Wheel in concert with the Missouri Symphony.
