Hi everyone,

Here is the poster below. It sounds like a fun evening- for a good cause – and I’m sure Gia would be delighted if any of you are available and would like to attend!

Broadway Comes to the Larcom on Oct 23, 2022

A Musical Showcase of Broadway Hits and Opera Arias

Did a little digging and found this:

From the website:
Broadway takes over the Larcom for an unforgettable night of pure bliss!  From Camelot to Turandot, the talented vocalists and musicians hailing from the North Shore and beyond take you on a musical journey through Broadway Hits and Opera Arias. Special guest appearance by Peabody-born soprano Catherine Lamy, and featuring local favorites John Archer and Tom Edmonds. Join us for a magical evening of music and memories! Music directed by Holly Zagaria.

A few of us this saw “Broadway Returns to Glen Magna Farms” this past summer. The music and singing was fabulous! This time around, MCC accompanist and guru of all things music, Dr. Holly Zagaria, and the cast will perform at the Larcom Theatre, 13 Wallis Street, Beverly, MA 01915 — on Sunday, October 23, 2002, at 4 pm. (Tickets $30 / $30)

New ‘alto’ notes for soprano twos

We’re switching to the ALTO notes on measures 92 and the F on measure 93.

Attention Soprano 2s — Here are our new notes for measures 92 to 93 of “Angels Carol.” (Page 13, middle, after the key change.)

The note sequence is: F G F F F G A. (The last two notes in measure 93 are the original soprano 2 notes.)

And if you don’t have a piano or other instrument to find the notes — I think I got ’em right — I use “Pocket Pitch” on my iPhone.
