GREAT WATERS MUSIC FESTIVAL
Strains of “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” will fill the air the evening of August 17th at Anderson Hall when Adrienne Danrich makes a return to Wolfeboro with her eclectic recital called My Favorite Things. All of the songs contained in her program mean a great deal to her. She will tie her personal stories and anecdotes about how the songs have come to be a part of her repertoire as she performs some familiar and perhaps some not so familiar songs with her beautiful soprano voice. Included will be songs from the American Songbook, Broadway, Opera and traditional spirituals.
Ms. Danrich is an alumna of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and while still a student there she was commissioned by the Cincinnati Opera to write This Little Light of Mine: The Stories of Marian Anderson ad Leontyne Price which won a 2011 National Academy of Television Art and Sciences Chicago/Midwest Emmy. She has also written and performed An Evening in the Harlem Renaissance inspired by the life of Langston Hughes and Echoes of the Harlem Renaissance. Her latest endeavor is her newly written one-woman show, Love & Trouble: Five Personas – One Voice. She will be accompanied by pianist Djordje Nesic.
Once again, the Great Waters Music Festival is offering this performance as a gift to the greater community in appreciation for supporting the arts. Even though there is no charge for this performance, tickets are required for entrance and may be picked up at the Great Waters office, 54 North Main Street, Wolfeboro. There were very few empty seats at last year’s performance so pick up your tickets early.
The Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to culturally enriching New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. It encompasses a diversified program designed to appeal to a variety of musical tastes. Its purpose is to promote live musical performances including folk, pop, jazz, Broadway, dance, and renowned vocal and instrumental artists.
