Just days after Beth Ann Zinkievich's junior recital, Amanda Densmoor will be performing on yet another University of Maryland recital! The soprano will be featured on doctoral candidate Alex Chan's piano recital, which includes works by Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, and Ned Rorem, among others. Entitled Unusual Texts, the recital features art songs which have been composed on non-poetic texts. The free recital will be streamed on Vimeo on Wednesday, April 14, at 8PM.
While you wait, enjoy a preview video from their rehearsal including Alex Chan, Alfonso Hernandez, Colin Doyle, and our own Amanda Densmoor!
In a year riddled with virtual performances and other compromises, we feel so fortunate to announce that we've won two Wammie Awards! The Wammie Awards is a 33-year-old award show aimed at recognizing DC, Maryland, and Virginia area artists and musicians for their artistic works and impact across our region.
We've been honored with both Best Choral Album for My Lord Has Come, and Best Choral Group. We're so thankful for all of the singers, collaborators, recording engineers, donors, and volunteers who've played a role in our young history. We couldn't have done this without the support of all those in the Lux family!
