I want to extend my heartfelt congratulations and thanks to the amazing cast and crew of the rock opera “Memory!”
Last night, the opera was given a concert presentation at the prestigious DiMenna Center in New York City, starring Christopher Sokolowski, Claudillea Holloway, and William Guango Su, backed by the brilliantly blissful Metamorphosis Chamber Orchestra.
A special thank you to
- Claudillea, for her beautiful voice
- Christopher, for his pin-dropping, a cappella solo
- William, for his suave baritone and the iroicn humor he brought to his role
I was extremely impressed by the flawless, elegant presentation of the three singers – and with so few rehearsals! The audience thoroughly enjoyed the show and showered it with praise. What a wonderful feeling to be part of such a special, thoughtful piece.
A very special “thank you” to my tuneful and talented collaborator, Andrew Seligson, who, as producer of the piece, masterminded it through the performance process with a great deal of skill. I know from my own experience as a former president of a theatrical not-for-profit that producing a show – any show, especially a musical – is very hard. Andrew handled it with a great deal of class and ability.
Stay tuned! More photos (and song samples) to come!
