Vocal focus in the summertime*

Lauri D. Goldenhersh’s Weekly Highlights
Labor Day cometh! As summer winds down with a long weekend, the voal offerings may be few, but they’re not to be a missed. A few highlights:
PACIFIC OPERA PROJECT takes their Trekkie Abduction to the Ford Amphitheatre this weekend, which is a big step up in visibility for this creative little company. But with this one-of-a-kind production, they seem to have no problems filling the 1200-seat house, according to the tix site. There are still a few seats available — learn more and get yours
Be sure to watch for POP’s Rake’s Progress later this month, and plan ahead there as well — this troupe has a long history of selling out! Click here
For something more obliquely related to classical vocal, keep an eye out for ‘Anaïs, A Dance Opera’, opening this Friday 9/2 in Hollywood. This is certainly a stretch of the traditional definition of “opera”, and dwells more on the rock side of the teeter-totter. But it’s a fascinating project based on the work of diarist Anaïs Nin, and like its subject, may expand artistic boundaries for those who are intrigued. The show is produced by MIXED EMOTION THEATRIX, and offers 13 performances at the Greenway Court Theatre, running through 9/18. Learn more and get tickets
On 9/11, the Jewish Music Commission of Los Angeles presents the VIKLARBO CHAMBER ENSEMBLE at Valley Beth Shalom, with a highly unusual program of music by composers best known in varying realms: Max Janowski and Aminadav Aloni, for instance are two of the best-loved creators of modern liturgical works for the synagogue. Rebecca Clarke, Joaquin Turina and William Bolcom, however, are more familiar to concert audiences. The program also includes “Nissuin” by SoCal’s own MARIA NEWMAN, who also plays violin as part of the ensemble, with violist SCOTT HOSFELD, cellist PAULA HOCHHALTER and pianist WENDY PROBER. This concert also features soprano CHRISTINA BORGIOLI and mezzo DIANA TASH. All are welcome, but reservations are required by non on Fri 9/9. Full details

*This post is echoed from the weekly vocal events column in the Clickable Chamber Music Newsletter, serving nearly seven thousand music fans all over Southern California. The original is a text-based email newsletter, so images, links and details may differ in this enhanced version.
The Clickable Chamber Music Newsletter and Next 7 are both on summer schedule, publishing every two weeks through August and early September. You can view our schedule here. This year, we’re on alternate weeks with CCMN, so we’ll publish a vocal column every week, in one or the other publication. Of course, we’ll echo it here on the blog, too — easy peasy!
