It’s a Grand Night for Singing at Jarvis Conservatory

Jarvis Conservatory presents It’s a Grand Night for Singing on Saturday, Feb. 4, from 7 to 9 p.m. Three artists, friends from previous It’s a Grand Night for Singing concerts, will return, along with a mainstay tenor from the Bay Area opera and theater scene making his Jarvis concert debut.

Rachel Deatherage, delaying her return to Europe to join a production here, will sing an aria from Rossini’s Cenerentola (his version of Cinderella), and will examine weightier matters in an aria from Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking.

Paradise resident Jacques Williams will present songs by Gustav Mahler, Maurice Ravel and local composer Kurt Erickson.

Courtney Daniels of Woodland will return with a favorite aria from Puccini’s La Rondine, along with Marguerite’s moving aria “at the spinning wheel” from Gounod’s Faust and two art songs by Sergei Rachmaninoff.

For his first appearance on the concert series, tenor Michael Mendelsohn will offer “unusually honest” material from mid-century Britain and from 1930s Hollywood, along with the inspiring “Somewhere” from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.

Music director and pianist Frank Johnson will guide the singers and audience through the evening.

Accordionist Sheri Mignano Crawford will keep the lobby lively before the concert and during the complimentary wine and tapas intermission.

Tickets are $20 at the box office beginning at 6 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. or you may buy tickets online at
