Preparing for concert with Washington National Opera Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists

December 3rd, 2012

Dolce Suono Ensemble had a great day of rehearsals with two fantastic singers from Washington National Opera Domingo-Cafritz Young Artists. Our ensemble of Mimi Stillman, flute, Nathan Vickery, cello, and Charles Abramovic, piano rehearsed Bach arias with tenor Yuri Gorodetski and songs by Mozart and Schubert with baritone Norman Garrett. We’re preparing for a concert on the Steinway Music Series at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on Sunday, December 9 at 3:00pm.

Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program principal coach Ken Weiss, assistant conductor at Washington National opera, attended rehearsal. Our varied and festive program features music by Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Weber, Schumann, Bizet-Borne, Saint-Saëns, and Ravel, including arrangements of Mozart and Schubert lieder by Steven Stucky, Pulitzer Prize-wnning composer.

It is a great thrill to play great music with marvelous musicians, and we look forward to the concert.
