BRITTEN IN SONG, Nov. 10 2013 in Glendale, CA


The Spacious Vision Song Project will present the concert “Britten in Song” on Nov. 10, 2013 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Glendale, CA. General admission, no tickets required, donations requested. (Our only funding source is audience donations, and we have a number of expenses to meet. So we are asking everyone who attends to contribute whatever they can.)

With this program, two generations of artists join forces for a celebration of the Benjamin Britten Centennial. The accomplished Los Angeles based singers for this concert will include sopranos Bianca Hall and Ariel Pisturino, baritone David Castillo, and tenors Arnold Livingston Geis and Gerald Seminatore.  They will be joined on a musical tour of Britten’s songs and operatic arias by pianist and conductor Kristof van Grysperre, Associate Conductor of the Long Beach Opera.

(Some other musical friends may also join us.)
