VOCAL FEST! With pianist Betty Oberacker, three SB outstanding singers will perform arias and songs. Tenor Gabriel Silva will present three works: the beautiful La caravane (The Caravan), by French composer Ernest Chausson, then "È la solita storia del pastore" (The Old Tale of the Shepherd), from the opera L'arlesiana by Francesco Cilea, and the classically lyrical Adelaide, by Beethoven.
Bass-baritone Emil Cristescu and pianist Betty Oberacker conclude with three arias: Mozart's humorous and sarcastic "Madamina" (The Catalog Aria) from Don Giovanni, Tchaikovky's poignant aria by Prince Gremin from Eugene Onegin, and Giuseppe Verdi's striking "Infin che un brando vindice" from Ernani.
Baritone Andre Shillo will conclude the concert with three dramatic and stunningly powerful operatic arias: "O vin, dissipe la tristesse" (Oh Wine, Dissipate the Sadness) from Hamlet by Ambroise Thomas, "Were I a Man Whom Fate Intended" (Onegin's Aria) from Eugene Onegin by Tchaikovsky, and "Votre toast, je peux cous le rendre" (Toreador Song) from Carmen by Georges Bizet.
