Britten in Song: A note for our audience

britten100Concertos“Britten in Song” is today! Nov. 10 at 5:00 at The Parish Church of St. Mark, Episcopal in Glendale, 1010 N. Brand Blvd. It will be a celebration of Benjamin Britten’s repertoire for the solo voice. Not only is the repertoire varied, but so are the voices! Sopranos Bianca Hall and Ariel Pisturino, tenor Arnold Geis, and baritone David Castillo are all uniquely compelling vocalists and performers. Add to this the talents of internationally acclaimed tenor Jonathan Mack and the pianistic finesse of Kristof van Grysperre, and the only possible result is an extraordinary recital.

This is a general admission event, and no tickets are
required. We don’t know what is in your hearts, or your budget, but we are counting on visitors to make some sort of donation to help us cover the costs of this event. We would gratefully accept cash or a check, as is convenient.

Parking is free in the church parking lot (behind the church on Dryden) and on adjacent streets. Refreshments or a light meal before or after the program are available at Recess, only a few steps away from the church on Brand Blvd.

There will be a brief pre-concert talk about Britten and his music at 5:00, and then it’s off to the races! We hope to see you.
