We’re pleased to welcome back singer Monica Pasquini, a Sarasota native, early recipient of an Artist Series Concerts scholarship award and a musical success story! Joining Monica on this homecoming will be fellow coloratura soprano (and Florida native) Rebecca Shorstein.
Evocative of afternoon tea at the Ritz, of tea dances held amidst an enchanting court of potted palms, the term “Palm Court” remains synonymous with the light music repertoire that became popular in the resorts, spas, bandstands, floral halls – and palm courts - of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
Coloratura soprano Jenny Kim-Godfrey is quickly gaining notoriety for her “nightingale tone” and mezzo-soprano Robyn Rocklein is known for her vibrant and flexible zwischen-fach voice. The ladies are accompanied by Joseph Holt, pianist.
