It’s a Grand Night For Singing at Jarvis

Jarvis Conservatory presents “It’s a Grand Night For Singing” on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. Host Frank Johnson has invited three powerful performers to offer arias and songs of deep emotions, seduction and crisis. Erich Buchholz, tenor, will return to perform songs of Tchaikovsky and Brahms. He will offer “Molasses to Rum,” an indictment of hypocrisy from the musical 1776, and “Je crois entendre encore,” an aria of regret and suppressed passion from Bizet’s first performed opera, Les Pêcheurs de Perles (The Pearl Fishers).  Julio Ferrari, baritone, will join Buchholz in the famous duet of unbreakable friendship from the same opera, “Au fond du temple saint.” No stranger himself to the Jarvis stage, Ferrari will also portray Mozart’s seductive Don Giovanni, Bizet’s famous toreador from Carmen (with some help from the audience) and Benjamin Britten’s tragic and naive sailor Billy Budd. Returning to the Jarvis stage from her home in England, Francesca Santamaria will showcase her versatility with a classical Italian song, a teenage boy’s exuberant take on women from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, the temptress’ passionate avowal of love from Saint-Saëns’ Samson and Delilah and a heart-rending elegy, “My Brother Lived in San Francisco.” Santamaria and Ferrari will also present a powerful scene from the awardwinning Broadway musical Nine. Sheri Mignano Crawford will play accordion and refreshments will be served at intermission. Tickets are $20 at or at the box office beginning at 6 p.m.  Jarvis Conservatory, 1711 Main St., Napa
