Next Recital Opportunity

 

Join us this Sunday, August 7, at 4:30 for a lovely afternoon of music and lecture. Once again, Tina Paulson will regale you with songs by and about Venetian women, while I fill in the details of their history and biographies. Hear about the composers Barbara Strozzi and Antonia Padoani Bembo, followed by Tina’s soprano voice bringing their music to life. We’ll continue by discussing the life of poets and courtesans as well as boat racers, with the lives of Veronica Franco, Maria Boscola, and Marina Querini Benzon and music by Vivaldi and Rossini. Tina closes with “La Biondina in Gondoleta,” that still-popular barcarolle extolling the relaxing moments of gliding in a gondola with a beautiful companion.

The recital will be held at the Museo ItaloAmericano at Fort Mason center in San Francisco. What a lovely way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon! Event details are a a click away, and please let the Museo know that you’ll be attending. A presto!

  2. It did, thank you! I’m hoping someone will come up with another venue for us to present it again.
