Words and Music: Blythe Gaissert (Mezzo-Soprano & Friends)
May 9th, 2014 8:00pm @ The Glenridge Performing Arts Center
Let the "eloquent", "sensuous" and "vivid" mezzo-soprano Blythe Gaissert take you in a journey through music old and new.
Blythe comes to Sarasota by way of the Metropolitan and Los Angeles Philharmonic to present a program especially curated for the Forward Festival.
She will team up with acclaimed pianist Djordje Nesic and other festival artists for a beautiful evening of works for the voice including Poulenc, Glen Hansard, and a world premiere from Richard Pearson Thomas.
