Sibelius celebrates 150 – mini concert & reception
December 8, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jean Sibelius, Lyric Fest will offer a short concert to be celebrated with wine and cheese at AVA at 6 pm on Tuesday, December 8, 2015, the day of his birth. Song aficionados know that though seldom programmed in the U.S., Sibelius songs are considered to be among the finest in the repertory. Singers Anne Marie Frohnmayer, Anthony Schneider, and Suzanne DuPlantis join Laura Ward at the piano to present many of his most beautiful works, sung in the original Swedish, Finnish, and German.
