October 17 | Compton Heights
Kicking off our second season of House Concerts is our first ever solo recital featuring special guest artist, Metropolitan Opera soprano, Mary Dunleavy. In the stately 1910 Compton Heights home of Dr. Kenneth and Marjorie Smith. St. Louis opera lovers will likely remember Ms. Dunleavy from several, memorable performances at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis over the past decade. Ms. Dunleavy and pianist, Gail Hintz will perform a recital featuring art songs of Pauline Viardot as well as operatic favorites from her varied repertoire.
November 21 | Kingsbury Place
SOLD OUT – call to be added to the waitlist
Join us this fall evening for a look back at the Golden-Age of Broadway. UAO artists Ian Greenlaw, Gina Malone and Leann Schuering, along with pianist Nancy Mayo, headline this magical concert featuring favorite hits of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Lowe and many others. You will leave humming tunes like “This Nearly Was Mine,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” and “The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music.” The evening concludes with a sing-along version of “Edelweiss,” so come ready to sing! The lovely Central West End, Kingsbury Place home of Mark Harrington and Jane Zhu will be our stage for this enchanted evening.
December 19 | Magic Chef Mansion
We close this series with a return to the spectacular 1908 Magic Chef Mansion, one of St. Louis’ premiere old-world estates in the historic Compton Hill Reservoir Square neighborhood, which this year will be splendidly decorated for Christmas by our host Shelley Donahoe. Join UAO artists Brittany Graham, Debra Hillabrand and Randell McGee, with pianist Nancy Mayo as they perform a recital of Christmas music that will certainly leave you ready for the holidays! After the program explore the decorated mansion and enjoy Christmas cookies and mulled cider.
