College of Charleston SCHOOL OF THE ARTS

CofC Vocal Virtuosos in Concert

The 2nd Monday Series at the College of Charleston School of the Arts will present a concert featuring virtuoso singers on March 9. Professors from the College’s bustling music department will perform an array of works: Scotch Songs by Ludwig van Beethoven, “Soliloquoy” from Carousel by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Johannes Brahms Vier Duette, Op. 61, the hilarious Act II “Poison scene” from Cosi fan tutte by W.A. Mozart, and also the U.S. premiere of Garden Songs composed by faculty composer Edward Hart.

The performers will include sopranos Deanna McBroom, Amanda Castellone and Anna Steenerson-Young; tenor Robert Taylor; baritones David Templeton and Art Bumgardner; pianist Robin Zemp; violinist Yuriy Bekker; and cellist Natalia Khoma. Each artist-scholar carries an impressive range of performance and teaching experience; the concert offers a unique opportunity for students and the public to see them perform on stage together. McBroom will also be joined on the Hart duets by mezzo Helen Tintes-Schuermann, from Vienna, Austria.
