In December 2012, YAA will bring you MARTYRS, a concert of selections from opera and musical theatre featuring characters that gave their lives for a cause. We will again welcome guest soloists that will mentor our student singers and orchestra.
We are over the moon to be able to announce YAA’s debut in the
Main Concert Hall at The Music Center at Strathmore on
Sunday, March 10, 2013!!
This concert will be a collaboration with the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras and will be a new, unique production bringing together two ravishing scores: the opera Madama Butterfly and the musical Miss Saigon.
As most know, these two scores written 85 years apart share the same storyline, and we will explore this heartwrenching tale from these two unique musical perspectives. YAA student vocalists will share the big stage at Strathmore with professional opera singers and the MCYO Philharmonic Orchestra of almost 100 instrumentalists. The production will be directed by Shakespeare Theatre Company Assosicate Director, Alan Paul.
We are happy to be able to add a third production to our season this year to present a genre of vocal-orchestral music that we have not yet had a chance to explore: Oratorio!
In May 2013, we will present REQUIEM, an original Requiem pastiche with music compiled from movements by Faure, Verdi, Mozart, Durufle, Bizet, Schubert and Andrew Lloyd Webber. This concert will be presented in two different church venues, the second of which is a major DC landmark which we will be able to announce soon!
