Fun is the focus of PAAL’s 34th season featuring returning audience favorites and introducing young performance groups new to our region.
On December 5 the Arundel Vocal Arts Society – a chorus of 60 voices presents its beloved Christmas program that has delighted audiences since soon after AVAS beginning in 1983. Under the direction of JoAnn Kulesza, AVAS will offer its “Songs of Christmas” program to feature Mozart’s Coronation Mass along with favorite songs of the season including such childhood favorites as “Frosty the Snowman” and beloved classics “Little Drummer Boy” and “Do You Hear What I Hear?” plus a “Salute to Maritime Music” to present a variety of seasonal music designed to appeal to every audience member.
Broadway music reigns on Valentine’s Day 2016 when we welcome Live Arts Maryland for a fifth annual Broadway program at PAAL with the emphasis always on superb music-making under Director J. Ernest Green, who leads members of the Annapolis Chorale and Chamber Orchestra plus soloists in the classic 1947 musical “Finnian’s Rainbow.” Here we’ll discover how things are in Glocca Morra where leprechauns and politicians seek a pot of gold under a rainbow. The wonderful Irish-tinged scores with gospel and R&B influences are sure to entertain.
We introduce a musical delight in a condensed version of Mozart’s last staged opera “The Magic Flute” which we hope will captivate children with their parents or grandparents on Sunday, March 6 when Peabody Outreach Children’s Opera presents “Papageno!” that is based on Mozart’s “Magic Flute” that has been condensed with sensitivity and skill to tell the magical story in under an hour. Here Prince Tamino and his servant Papageno are sent by the mysterious Queen of the Night to search for her daughter Princess Pamina, who is found after a series of adventures set to the marvelous music of Mozart delivered in nearly complete arias by a stellar cast of Peabody singers who convey the magical story brilliantly for the children’s total understanding and appreciation.
We promise the most fun ever at our last concert of the season on Saturday, April 23 when world-class guitarists Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo join Maestra Anna Binneweg and the AACC Symphony Orchestra in an encore performance of their joint concert first presented last April at AACC’s Kauffman Theater – a concert that the near-capacity audience agreed was the most fun concert ever marking the first performance of internationally renowned guitarists Vignola and Raniolo with a full symphony orchestra – a concert that must be heard live again by a new capacity audience who will fully experience the wonderous joy of music.
