A SPECIAL CONCERT BENEFITING THE

ALEXANDRIA FESTIVAL OF THE LAKES

Sunday, November 23, 2014

5:00 PM

Plymouth Congregational Church

1900 Nicollet Ave. at Franklin

Minneapolis, MN

During a rehearsal break this past August, soprano Maria Jette and pianist Sonja Thompson put forward the idea of repeating their Alexandria perfromance in the Twin Cities, and making it a fundraiser to benefit the Festival.  That idea will be made real when, on November 23rd, we will repeat our August 3rd program at

Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis. 

The concert will feature Maria singing her new translation

of the 5 Satires, Op. 109 of Dmitri Shostakovich. 

Also on the program: the Op. 38 song cycle of Rachmaninov; Glazunov's Elegie for viola and piano; a String Trio of Schubert;

and the Piano Quartet in E-flat Major by Dvorák.

With Jill Olson Moser, violin; Tamás Strasser, viola;

Kirsten Whitson, cello; Sonja Thompson, piano

No admission charge; a free-will offering will be taken.
