Conservatory Gala Concert: One of a Kind
JANUARY 31 | 6:30PM
One of a Kind is a special evening of music with an amazing array of chamber music from classical to world music to cabaret with artistic collaborators Lawrence Dutton, Elizabeth Lim-Dutton, Ethos Percussion Group and Sylvia McNair.
Two-time Grammy Award winner, Sylvia McNair, lays claim to a three-decade, stellar career in the musical realms of opera, oratorio, cabaret and musical theatre. Her journey has taken her from the Metropolitan Opera to the Salzburg Festival, from the New York Philharmonic to the Rainbow Room, from the Ravinia Festival to The Plaza, from the pages of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to The London Times and the cover of Cabaret Scenes. She has appeared as a soloist multiple times with nearly every major opera company and symphony orchestra in the world.
“Spellbinding,” “astonishing”, and “immaculate” are all words that critics have used to describe the Ethos Percussion Group. Ethos is equally at home with contemporary classical repertoire or in collaborations with master musicians from non-Western traditions. Their unique performances seamlessly transport global influences into Western chamber music to create a visually compelling experience.
