They can’t resist the lure of Schenectady.
Recently, the Vienna Vegetable Orchestra played one of only two U.S. dates in the Electric City. Now, internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn (pictured) and pianist Joseph Breinl will give one of only three U.S. recitals in Union College’s Memorial Chapel. (The other two are at Middlebury College and some joint called Carnegie Hall.)
Stotijn is a European favorite, having won the 2008 Dutch Music Prize and this year’s BBC Music Magazine vocal award for her recent Tchaikovsky recording. We presume she has sung for all remaining crowned heads of Europe, too. For this performance, she will sing works by Greig, Brahms, Richard Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky and Rachmaninoff.
Christianne Stotijn and Joseph Breinl will perform Saturday (Nov. 27) at 8 PM in the Union College Memorial Chapel (Schenectady). Tickets are $20 general admission, $8 area students. For more info, call 388-6080.
