CROWELL CHAPEL CONCERT SERIES presents â€śVIVA VERDI!â€ť with DIANA JACKLIN, Soprano & HARTMUT OMETZBERGER, Violin - Saturday November 23
|Distinguished American Soprano Diana Jacklin and leading Austrian violinist Hartmut Ometzberger, whose music is described as â€śbreathtaking,â€ť â€śan exceptional joyâ€ť and â€śa selfless expression of Art,â€ť lead you in a 200th birthday celebration of Giuseppe Verdi at the Crowell Chapel at 4 Rosedale Ave (off of School Street) in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts at 7:30 pm.|
World-class musicians Diana Jacklin and Hartmut Ometzberger perform internationally to critical acclaim. As the only voice and violin duo in the world, TIME OUT (NYC) describes Diana Jacklin and Hartmut Ometzbergerâ€™s collaboration as â€śan eclectic duoâ€ť. The program includes beautiful arrangements by Hartmut Ometzberger of Verdi, Mozart and Turn-of-the-Century songs. The rarely performed and gorgeous Verdi songs are performed as a tribute to celebrate Verdiâ€™s 200th Birthday. Since the Crowell Chapel was built in 1903 and recently restored, the idea of performing some wonderful Turn-of-the-Century songs from the early 1900â€™s came into focus. Another inspiration for including these songs comes from the popularity of the PBSâ€™s â€śDownton Abbeyâ€ť series. â€śDownton Abbeyâ€ť fans will recognize one of the songs from the second season of â€śDownton Abbeyâ€ť. The Mozart songs are beautiful gems that take on a new sound dimension when performed with violin and voice.
The concert venue, Crowell Memorial Chapel, was built in 1903. Its naturally vibrant acoustics and classic interior have made it a popular venue for musical performances, appreciated by both artists and patrons. The Crowell Chapel Concert Seriesâ€“sponsored by the Historic Manchester Trust, a not-for-profit Massachusetts 180 Corporationâ€“is one avenue for helping the Town fund the long-term preservation of recently restored historic structures like Crowell Chapel and Tuckâ€™s Point.
