Music Club to host mezzo soprano in concert on Sunday

PERFORMING on Sunday as part of the Fredericksburg Music Club’s concert series are pianist Richard Masters and mezzo soprano Kathryn Findlen. The public is invited to attend the concert beginning at 3 p.m. at the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church.

The Fredericksburg Music Club will present mezzo soprano Kathryn Findlen in concert on Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Fredericksburg United Methodist Church.

Findlen will be accompanied by Richard Masters on the piano.

The concert will begin at 3 p.m. with seating beginning at 2:30 p.m.

While there is no cost for admission to the concert, a goodwill offering will be accepted. 

Music for this concert will include works from Gershwin, Frazelle, Debussy and Schonberg.

Findlen and Masters made their New York debut in Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall this May, presenting New York premieres of “Songs in the Rear View Mirror” and “Book of Blue Flowers” by composer Kenneth Frazelle.

Committed to the performance of concert and chamber works by contemporary composers, Findlen and Masters have worked with such composers as Daron Hagen, George Crumb, Daniel Catán, John Harbison and Robert Ward.

Masters’ recent piano vocal reduction of Catán’s “La hija de Rappaccini” is available from G. Schirmer.

Bringing their combined experience in opera to the concert stage, the pair creates technicolor soundscapes and dramatic realizations of the characters and stories they bring to life, explained a spokesman.
