“Carols Rare and Bright” features rarely heard solo songs and carols from composers such as Benjamin Britten, Ralph Vaughn Williams, and Joaquin Rodrigo. A highlight of the concert are performances of carols by jazz musician Alfred Burt. This music is still very much in season; after all, Twelfth Night (the last of the Twelve Days of Christmas) does not fall until Jan. 5!
Singers for these concerts are baritones Bernardo Bermudez and Anthony Moreno, sopranos Ariel Pisturino and Susan Mohini Kane, and the critically acclaimed tenor Gerald Seminatore. Pianist Kristof van Grysperre, Associate Conductor at the Long Beach Opera, presides over the program. This is an extraordinary lineup of vocal and musical talent!
