Spectrum: Exploring the Range of the Human Voice vocal recital April 7, 2024 at Richmond Beach Congregation Church

Tuesday, March 26, 2024

The Recital Series at Richmond Beach Congregational Church presents:
Spectrum: Exploring the Range of the Human Voice

Accomplished local soprano Miriam Gnagy (and friends) will present "Spectrum: Exploring the Range of the Human Voice" - a recital of art song, aria, and contemporary music showcasing the vast range of the singing voice—from works that showcase a wide tessitura, to various styles of singing, and depths of human emotion. 

Miriam is joined by pianist Dwight Beckmeyer; tenor and pianist Kaelee Bolme; and backing vocalists Katie Skovholt, Erin Gabriel, David Horton, and Danny Szydlo!

Program to feature:
  • Come Scoglio - from Mozart’s Cosi fan tutti
  • Nocturne for the Breathless
  • The Ballad of Jane Doe - from Ride the Cyclone

Featuring opera, art song, and contemporary works, from Mozart to Brandi Carlile: Come hear the striking leaps and coloratura in Mozart’s famous aria, Come Scoglio, from his opera, Cosi fan tutti. 

Stay as we progress into more contemporary art songs, including a new work titled, Nocturne for the Breathless, written by living composer Logan Essex (Hahn) - a piece written in response to Covid-19 – featuring artfully crafted word painting with exquisite poetry by Alexandra Smerenka. 

As we move into the final pieces of the concert we will feature several works from musical theater! You won’t want to miss The Ballad of Jane Doe, from the show Ride the Cyclone. Listen as Jane soars high into the ethers, lamenting why no one remembers who she is.

Mark your calendar for this wonderful hour of music with Miriam and friends at Richmond Beach Congregational Church!
