Sara Keene, 88, of South Egremont

We are sad to have just learned of the passing of Sara Keene this past November. Recently we had shared a picture of her with Carlisle Floyd at our 2017 Gala. She was one of the founding Board Members of little OPERA and helped get us started. Sara was and is a continuing influence on all we do.

Sara Keene, nee Rhodes, was an opera singer, pianist, and proprietor of The Egremont Village Inn.

Fantastic Evening... I think it will be available for several more days on HGO's website. Don't miss the haunting chorus from 'The Passion of Jonathan Wade' Great moments from 'Of Mice and Men' and 'Cold Sassy Tree" 'Willie Stark' and of course 'Susannah.' Bravi tutti. #carlislefloyd #meetopera #houstongrandopera

'Prince of Players' is based upon a play by Jeffrey Hatcher, that was turned into a movie, and then Carlisle Floyd turned the play into an opera. Set in 17th C England after a plague, the leading classical actor sings an impassioned plea to the king "Don't take our stages away."' #carlislefloyd #meetopera #princeofplayers #jeffreyhatcher #thelittleoperatheatreofny #houstongrandopera #saveourstages

A very modern love triangle and a backstage drama about classical theater, it's still astounding that Carlisle Floyd completed his final opera when he was 90! LOTNY was proud to help this original American opera reach new audiences. Find out more at HGO's memorial concert which will be available to livestream

Carlisle Floyd Memorial Concert

HGO is hosting a memorial concert for Carlisle Floyd next Friday, Feb 11.
It's streamable and the info is below. His operas are fundamental to the American canon
and helped open doors to many of today's new works as well.

On September 30, 2021, Carlisle Floyd died at age 95. The great American composer and educator, known as the “Dean of American Opera,” had a decades-long relationship with HGO and with Houston. He is dearly missed. “No other company in the history of opera has had such a long creative relation...

The performance is led by Music Director & Harpsichordist Elliot Figg, Director Philip Shneidman, Assistant Director Dalia Sevilla, and features Violinists Manami Mizumoto, Rebecca Nelson, and Majka Demcak; Theorbist and Guitarist Paul Morton; and Master of Bass Instruments Doug Balliett.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: We are pleased to have Paul Holmes Morton join LOTNY THIS Friday (June 4) to play theorbo and guitar in our livestream concert: Monteverdi & other Treasures of the Seicento!

Lutenist, theorbist, banjoist, guitarist, lyricist, composer, arranger, vocalist, historical archeologist, soloist, chamber musician; the music of Paul Holmes Morton is defined less by genre than by a fascination with history, a cultivation of creativity, and a belief that music once born does not die or grow old. With a technical palette of colors ranging from the Florentine Camerata to modern Americana, Paul follows the thread of resonant evolution, his interpretations and performances stained with the resin left by countless musics present and not yet passed.

Tickets to join us online are just $5 and still available at lotny.org (link in bio).

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: We are delighted to have Violinist Rebecca Nelson return to LOTNY for our livestream concert: Monteverdi & other Treasures of the Seicento on June 4!

Rebecca Nelson (Violin) was the first US citizen born in former East Germany. At fourteen she left home to pursue a musical career in the States. She has played with different period ensembles all over the East Coast, including Boston’s Handel Haydn Society and has performed works on gut strings ranging from Monteverdi operas to film music by Saint-Säens. She is a member of the Shanghai Camerata, Digital Camerata and she recently joined Nuova Practica, a troupe of modern baroque composers and performers. Since graduating from The Juilliard School in May of 2020, Rebecca has started composing songs inspired by her love of both baroque and folk and is recording her very first album titled Do Not Lament.

Rebecca has recently been featured in LOTNY’s The Shepherd King video project (available on LOTNY’s website and YouTube channel).

Visit lotny.org, where you can watch The Shepherd King and get tickets for Monteverdi this Friday!

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: we are delighted to have Violinist Manami Mizumoto return to LOTNY for our June 4th livestream concert: MONTEVERDI & other Treasures of the Seicento. Ms. Mizumoto has been featured in LOTNY’s The Shepherd King video project (which you can watch at lotny.org) and in the livestream Mozart & Friends.

New York native Manami Mizumoto (Violin) started her lifelong relationship with music at age 3 on the violin. Early exposure to chamber music sparked in her a devoted love of collaboration. This led to a fascination with performing contemporary music and working with living composers. In recent years, this has manifested in a songwriting project co-created with Uhuru Quartet and composer Sato Matsui to benefit women’s shelters in NYC. In addition, Manami is passionate about exploring different approaches to music making in history and how that can transform the way modern audiences relate to music of the past. Her driving curiosity is in exploring the dialogue between ancient and contemporary thoughts, and she is equally at home on the baroque violin, modern violin, and electro-acoustic setups with Ableton Live. Manami is a recent graduate of the Juilliard School, where she earned her Masters in Historical Performance and graduated with the Norman Benzaquen Career Advancement Grant.

Tickets start at just $5 for MONTEVERDI this Friday! Visit lotny.org for details. Link in bio.
