Upcoming: Gilbert & Sullivan Society Fall Musicale, September 20

Received directly:

Fall Musicale: The Soaring Soul Soirée

Sunday, September 20
7 p.m.

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Austin presents "The Soaring Soul Soirée," an evening of popular G&S tunes imbued with traditional style, swing, and a jazzy twist.

Reminiscent of an old-time radio show, this light-hearted parody will transport your soul to a place of reverie and delight. The program will include fine sounds from local jazz group La Vie en Rose, featuring vocalist Diana VandeWater; the pianistic stylings of accompanist Martha Dudgeon; the premiere of Come to Me, a lovely chamber choral piece written by Lisa Alexander (who appeared as the Fairy Queen in our recent production of Iolanthe); and other wonderful performers from past G&S shows - Katherine Altobello, Jay Chacon, David Fontenot, June Julian, Lisa Alexander, Paul Nixon, Louis Ontko and Meredith Ruduski.

Songs performed will include selections from The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, HMS Pinafore, Patience, Iolanthe, The Sorcerer, Thespis, and The Yeomen of the Guard.

Invite your friends and family to join along and please bring your favorite munchies to share. We look forward to seeing you at The Soaring Soul Soirée.
