Check out this Seattle Times review about last weekend’s stunning production of Handel’s Baroque opera Semele! There is much cause for celebration in the success of this collaboration between the choir and voice divisions at UW and Pacific MusicWorks. The chorus consisted of members of Chamber Singers, UW Chorale, Men’s Glee and Recital Choir. Students in solo roles included Chris Kouldukis, Emerald Lessley, Christina Kowalski-Holien, Joseph Muriello, Brianna Atwell and Dakota Miller. Next year’s production will be Mozart’s Magic Flute- tune back for more details soon.
University of Washington Orpheus Ensemble, under the direction of DMA candidate Kristin Lindenmuth, appeared live at Issaquah High School’s assembly last Friday with opera scenes and a Q and A session. Issaquah HS solo and ensemble participants were invited to the stage for the last scene to share in the performance. Keep your eyes out for updates of when you can see Orpheus Ensemble on campus in the near future! The Orpheus Ensemble is comprised of top undergraduate and graduate students from the vocal performance program at University of Washington.
