MasterVoices (formerly The Collegiate Chorale), closes its 75th anniversary season with Victor Herbert's Babes in Toyland on April 27, 2017 at 7pm at Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall (57th Street and 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019). The production will be conducted by MasterVoices’ Artistic Director Ted Sperling and will feature the MasterVoices chorus, Kelli O’Hara, Bill Irwin, Lauren Worsham, and Christopher Fitzgerald, with Orchestra of St. Luke's. A huge hit when it premiered in New York in 1903, Victor Herbert’s Babes in Toyland hasn’t seen a major revival in New York City in over 85 years. Full of glorious melodies, Babes in Toyland tells a story that is both amusing and scary: villainous Uncle Barnaby plots the deaths of his young niece and nephew, Alan and Jane, in order to gain their inheritance. After many twists and turns, the siblings, with the help of several Mother Goose characters, thwart his efforts and bring happiness back to Toyland.

Skylark Vocal Ensemble and the French Institute Alliance Francaise (FIAF) present Clear Voices in the Dark, an immersive concert interspersing songs from the American Civil War with Francis Poulenc's challenging and rarely performed Figure Humaine. Formed in 2011 by Artistic Director Matthew Guard, Skylark is a premiere a cappella vocal ensemble of leading American vocal soloists based in Atlanta and Boston. Skylark's music has been described as "sublimely beautiful" (Opera Obsession), and the group's lustrous voices have been praised for their ability to "sway you softly into calm and then all but throw you across the room with sheer harmonic force" ("Music for Writers," Thought Catalog).

Skylark Vocal Ensemble: Clear Voices in the Dark
Dates: April 27th at 7:00pm
Sponsor: FIAF
Auditorium: Florence Gould Hall
  55 East 59th Street
  New York, NY United States
Web: http://fiaf.org/events/spring2017/2017-04-27-skylark-ensemble.shtml

Join us for a very special evening of French and American wartime songs performed by the nationally acclaimed Skylark Vocal Ensemble. Francis Poulenc’s Figure Humaine is one of the greatest works ever composed for an unaccompanied choir. Inspired by the resistance poems of the surrealist Paul Éluard, Poulenc secretly wrote and rehearsed the piece in 1943 in occupied France. Clear Voices in the Dark juxtaposes the profound technical difficulty of Figure Humaine with the universal simplicity of hymns from the American Civil War. Performed together, these anthems are a stunning exploration of the realities of war and the power of music to ward off despair during humanity’s darkest hours.

Musicians Emergency Fund (MEF) Presents Franz Liszt: Holy And Infernal Genius, With Pianists Adam Golka And Orion Weiss, Mezzo-Soprano Lauren Eberwein
Dates: April 30, 2017

This spring’s Junior/Senior Concert by Musicians Emergency Fund (MEF) will be a tribute to Franz Liszt in all his controversial diversity as showman, teacher, musical thinker and forward-looking visionary. One of the superstar pianists of his era, Liszt was compared to violinist Niccolò Paganini as seeming to be in league with the devil. Yet he parlayed his fame into a golden opportunity to instruct, support and inspire an oncoming generation of fellow artists. Nowadays he is judged a pioneer in the growth of modern music. Both pianists who conceived of this spring’s Liszt concert are alumni of earlier events sponsored by MEF- Adam Golka in a March 2015 solo recital, Orion Weiss in an October 2016 program of rarely heard chamber music. On April 30 this year, in Liszt’s honor, they will perform solo works as well as the composer’s Réminiscences de Don Juan for two pianos. To represent Liszt’s still largely unfamiliar song repertory, the pianists are joined by gifted young mezzo-soprano Lauren Eberwein.
