It’s a Grand Night for Singing at Jarvis Conservatory

It’s a Grand Night for Singing concert at the Jarvis Conservatory at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6, presents three artists chosen by host Frank Johnson. Making her first appearance on the Jarvis stage will be soprano Madison Hatten. She will perform a blazing aria of jealous anger from Mozart’s Idomeneo, and also a song of sweet love in the zarzuela repertory, from La Marchenera by Torroba. Turning to art song, Hatten will sing “Ein Traum” by Edvard Grieg, and a lyric and musical gem from Samuel Barber’s “Nocturne.” Mezzo-soprano Meghan Dibble will sing a famous number from Brecht and Weill’s The Threepenny Opera and cabaret art-songs by American William Bolcom and Englishman Benjamin Britten. A literary, philosophical and musical highlight of the evening will be her performance of Aaron Copland’s setting of Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Nature, the gentlest mother.” Bass-baritone Richard Harrell will offer a diverse array of music including the comic genius of Gilbert and Sullivan, a poignant favorite from Leonard Bernstein and two evocative songs by Bolcom, as well as two of Harrell’s own songs, personal works of insight and social comment. Sheri Mignano Crawford will be there with her joyful accordion before the show begins and at intermission; ask her about her new book. Complimentary wine and snacks will be served at intermission. Tickets are $20 and available at the box office at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Jarvis Conservatory, 1711 Main St., Napa
