A Gala Concert for Music Scholarships

Shepherd University, Frank Arts Center, Shepherdstown, WV

Featured Alumni Guest Artist

I am delighted to appear as the featured Alumni Guest Artist for SU's Musical Showcase for Scholarships. My scholarship to the Music Department at Shepherd University was a huge assistance in being able to obtain my Bachelor of Music Education, and the main reason that I was able to pay off my student loans within five years of graduation. I am incredibly grateful to the department for their support, and am happy to be part of this event.

The concert will also feature The White House Band, led by Dave Detwiler.

All guests are invited to a meet-the-artists at a post-concert dessert reception immediately following the concert.

Washington National Opera: Verdi's 'Don Carlo'

 —  —

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F Street NW, Washington, DC

Ensemble

March 3-17, 2018 (Click 'Get Tickets' for specific dates and times)

Family ties fray and unravel in Verdi's spectacle of forbidden passion, political intrigue, and shattering betrayal set at the height of the Spanish Empire. More than 20 years have passed since WNO last staged this grand masterpiece in four acts, and now a solid-gold cast heralds its return in this stunning new production.

DMA Recital: Andrew Welch, Pianist

Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, College Park, MD

Soprano Soloist: Stravinsky's "Three Japanese Lyrics" Poulenc's "5 Poèmes de Baudelaire"

In 1912 Stravinsky read an anthology of Japanese lyrics. “The impression which they made on me was exactly like that made by Japanese paintings and engravings. The graphic solution of problems of perspective and space shown by their art incited me to find something analagous in music.” The resulting mini-songs set three lyrics about the coming of Spring.

Andrew Welch, Pianist UMD Chamber Ensemble

Mar25

Washington National Cathedral: Händel's 'Israel in Egypt'

Washington National Cathedral, 3101 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC

Soprano II Soloist

Handel's masterwork, complete with Part 1 -The Ways Of Zion Do Mourn, tells of the journey of the Israelites out of Egypt to the promised land following 400 years in captivity. Handel's use of choral and orchestral color and texture to paint vivid images of this epic story seem the composer at his peak of creative genius.

Michael McCarthy, Conductor

Washington National Cathedral Choir

Washington National Cathedral Baroque Orchestra

Washington National Cathedral: 103rd Anniversary ANZAC Day Commemoration

Washington National Cathedral, 3101 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC

Soprano Soloist .

The annual ANZAC service remembers and honors those who perished in the Dardanelles campaign that was fought between the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and the Turkish military. The toll was horrific for both sides, and the losses at Gallipoli played an enormous role in the developing sense of nationhood in both Australia and New Zealand. Anzac Day is observed each year near April 25 in commemoration of those who made the supreme sacrifice both in the Dardanelles campaign and in subsequent conflicts.

This year, 2018, marks the 103rd anniversary.

Washington National Opera: Bernstein's 'Candide'

John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F Street NW, Washington, DC

Soloist (Specific Roles TBA)

War! Earthquakes! Slavery! Disease! Very bad things happen to very good people (and plenty of bad ones too) as a terrific ensemble cast quick-change their way through dozens of colorful characters, performing a witty and effervescent score that includes such classic tunes as "The Best of All Possible Worlds," "Make Our Garden Grow," and "Glitter and Be Gay." Through all its hysterical scouring of 18th-century wickedness and woe, WNO's first-ever production of Candide still finds a way to move and inspire with life-affirming lessons that, surprisingly, ring just as true today.
