by Louis Hirsch

Kreft Center Auditorium

Concordia University

TICKETS:

General Admission Adults $18

Louis Hirsch was one of the nine founders of ASCAP in 1914. In 1920 he and Otto Harbach wrote the hit show “Mary,” in which “Love Nest,” his most successful song, later became the Burns and Allen radio and television show theme.

The plot is something of a Cinderella story, very popular in the early ‘20s. Mary is working as a secretary to the wealthy Mrs. Keene, whose son Jack finally realizes Mary is the only girl who supports him for more than money.
This concert performance will result in the first and only complete recording of the show. Be a part of it!

Comic Opera Guild's SPRING 2019 Show

THE TALENT AGENT

(The Music Master)

by Giovanni Pergolesi

FRIDAY 8 pm, SATURDAY 8 pm , SUNDAY 3 pm

MARCH 22-24

RIVERSIDE ARTS COMPLEX

Ypsilanti, MI

TICKETS:

General Admission Adults $18

Seniors $15 Students $10

A good-natured spoof of the music business, Pergolesi’s THE MUSIC MASTER (IL MAESTRO DI MUSICA) resembles Pergolesi’s more famous LA SERVA PADRONA, which was technically an Intermezzo. THE TALENT AGENT is our updated take on this 1731 comedy.

The interactions between the characters will tickle anyone who has taken voice lessons, and the complications of going pro could apply to Hollywood. Director Claudia Wier has made a detailed study of early Italian opera, and feels that the theme of this little opera is as valid today as it was nearly 300 years ago. It will be sung in an original English version, accompanied by a string quintet.
