Parlor Music Concert: Opera Standards of the 19th Century

Nov 20th 2016 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM

Operatic soprano Rebecca Carr returns to the Seward House Museum for the fifth annual Parlor Music Concert, accompanied by her accomplished collaborative pianist, Richard Montgomery. The magnificent ambiance of the Seward House Museum drawing room and its 1872 Steinway piano will compliment Carr’s voice, which is characterized as a “big, vibrant soprano” that brings “touching” and “remarkable” portrayals to the roles she performs. The evening with Carr features a dramatic and engaging program of beloved operatic and operetta arias.

After the performance all in attendance are invited join Carr and Montgomery for a complimentary reception. Enjoy champagne, cheese, chocolate, and conversation as evening falls on the splendid Seward House scene.

Carr, an Auburn native, has performed nationally and internationally in opera, in oratorio and concert performances, and in recital. Her repertoire includes the heroines of the operas of Mozart, Puccini, Verdi and Richard Strauss, among others. Montgomery, a North Carolina native, is Music Director of Ithaca Opera, and is in demand as pianist and conductor in Central NY and beyond. He serves as collaborative pianist at Ithaca College, and lecturer at SUNY Cortland's Performing Arts Department.
