On Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, at 7:00 pm, I attended this year's colorful and tuneful "An Evening with the Madrigal Singers: from madrigals to musical theater."
To appreciate the color, take a look at the two sets of photographs posted--for your viewing and downloading pleasure--on Flickr: Images from Friday and from Saturday.
To open the show, the Madrigal Singers entertained with some traditional songs, and you can watch their performance from both nights, for I recorded a few of the numbers for your delight, including "The Silver Swan" and "I Delight in All Your Beauty":
The singers also delighted the audiences with a couple a sampling
of some wonderful music from famous Broadway musicals, including The Sound of Music, South Pacific, The King and I, and Carousel.
I divided these performances into two
separate videos. Part One includes four songs from the Sound Of Music that many of you will have no trouble recognizing, including "The Sound of Music" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain"
Part Two contains "There is Nothin' Like a Dame" from South Pacific, "Hello Young Lovers" from The King and I, and three songs from Carousel, including "If I Loved You."
Each of these annual presentations also features a number of duets and solo performances. This year, Dr. Ediger asked me to make recordings of the senior performances, and so I made separate videos of four performances.
The first performance features Jacob Buss and A. J. Thompson singing "Stepsisters' Lament" from Cinderella:
Taylor Sirman entertained the audience with "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful" also from Cinderella:
Jacob Acers entertained with the only song of the evening not written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein II, "Being Alive" from Stephen Sondheim's Company:
And rounding out these special numbers from seniors, Matthew Jergens offered a fun-filled version of "That's the Way It Happens" from State Fair:
