Con Vivo will celebrate the art song with mezzo-soprano Sarah Nelson Craft and pianist Paul Vasile! This varied and beautiful program includes music by Benjamin Britten, Claude Debussy, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Franz Schubert, and George Gershwin.
Ms. Craft has performed at the Caramoor Festival, Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall, China’s Macau International Music Festival, with the New Jersey Festival Orchetra, on NPR’s This American Live live at BAM, and more. We’re excited to have her performing for Con Vivo before she travels to Paris to participate in “The Song Continues: Paris Residency” presented by Carnegie Hall at the Opéra Bastille.
Mr. Vasile’s wide-ranging talents and musical interests provide frequent opportunities to perform as a pianist, conductor and concert organist. He has performed in his own recitals of American Romantic organ music in Germany, Latvia and in New York City, including several performances on the historic Appleton pipe organ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
To aural pleasure,
