green star for adult eventAmerican Song in Recital

Opera Selections
Thu, September 29, 2016, 7:00 pm

Nicholas Hay, a basso cantante singer from Highland Park, NJ, Sarah Hawkey, soprano, and Martin Neron, pianist will perform an Evening of American Song. Mr. Hay started singing at a young age in the American Boychoir, and has not looked back since. He has sung in various venues such as Boston Symphony Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, Merkin Concert Hall, and the 92nd Street Y to name a few. Mr. Hay’s roles include Zuniga in “Carmen”, Rocco in “Fidelio”, Antonio & Bartolo in “Le Nozze di Figaro”, Peter Quince in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to name a few. Mr. Hay has appeared with Opera Philadelphia, Baltimore Opera Company, dell’Arte Opera Ensemble, the Peabody Opera Theatre, Chelsea Opera and The Opera Festival of New Jersey. Mr. Hay will be joined by Sarah Hawkey, Soprano, and Martin Neron, Piano.
Soprano Sarah Hawkey believes that to sing is to breathe love into the world. Sarah specializes in the very old and very new: both Baroque and contemporary composers alike. This season is full of debuts, including Mozart’s Mass in C Minor, Bach’s Magnificat, and Haydn’s Mariazeller Messe, as well as her Gotham Early Music Scene debut with Duo Seraphim, in collaboration with esteemed gambist Niccolo Seligmann, where they present a program of rarely-heard 17th-century French music. Sarah and Nick are together again with the Thoreau Ensemble in November, where she presents songs from the Italian Baroque. Later this season, Sarah debuts in Princeton with CUSP, a new music project, and Concordian Dawn, in a concert featuring the Medieval music of Machaut. Last season, she gave the world premieres of Surprisingly Poetic Moments from an Otherwise Typical Hiking Guidebook, a song cycle by Abraham Z. Morrison; I will not go, a duet with violin by Pamela Stein-Lynde; and Drawing Down the Moon, an opera by Hunter Long. Please visit sarahhawkey.com to learn more.

Praised as “an attentive partner” (Opera News), Canadian pianist Martin Néron has recorded different collections of French, Greek, and English art songs on the One Soul label, in addition to a program of songs by Mikis Theodorakis on the Romanos label. Mr. Néron has also recorded several concerts as a soloist and collaborative artist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). His publications on English, French, and German lyric diction, as well as French mélodie, have been featured in Australian Voice and Journal of Singing. His first book, Francis Poulenc: Selected Song Texts, was recently published by Leyerle Publications. Mr. Néron recently joined the Board of Directors of Joy In Singing, and holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music (DMA), Westminster Choir College, and Université de Montréal.

red star for teens eventpurple star for childrens eventgreen star for adult eventThe Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde – Radio Play

Raconteur Radio Actors
Thu, October 13, 2016, 6:30 pm

THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE: Based on the 1886 novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, it tells of a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde. Raconteur Radio stages theatrical presentations of vintage radio plays, classic works of literature, and pop culture parodies for live audiences in a variety of venues throughout the Tri-State area: libraries, adult communities, senior centers, community/cultural centers, restaurants, bars, high schools, grammar schools, and, on occasion, private homes.
Raconteur Radio productions are staged around (and amplified by) an art deco “fat boy” and feature theatrical lighting, period costumes, vintage commercials, Golden Age radio equipment, and extensive sound effects. The young Robert Louis Stevenson suffered from repeated nightmares of living a double life, in which by day he worked as a respectable doctor and by night he roamed the back alleys of old-town Edinburgh. In three days of furious writing, he produced a story about his dream existence. His wife found it too gruesome, so he promptly burned the manuscript. In another three days, he wrote it again. “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” was published as a “shilling shocker” in 1886, and became an instant classic. In the first six months 40,000 copies were sold. Queen Victoria read it. Sermons and editorials were written about it. An intriguing combination of fantasy thriller and moral allegory, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde depicts the gripping struggle of two opposing personalities — one essentially good, the other evil — for the soul of one man. Its tingling suspense and sensitive portrayal of man’s dual nature reveals Stevenson as a writer of great skill and originality, whose power to terrify and move us remains, over a century later, undiminished.WITH: Period costumes, theatrical lighting, Golden Age radio equipment, vintage commercials, fog, and, of course, extensive sound effects. PLUS: jazz vocalist Danielle Illario sings the period ballad, Roses of Picardy. Run time: 55 min.
