The splendid sounds of “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Riverdance,” jazz standards popularized by Sinatra and Fitzgerald, and several contemporary favorites will fill the Waterville Opera House at Inland Hospital Foundation’s thirteenth annual Fall Pops Concert Friday, October 5, 2018. This year’s concert will feature a talented collection of musicians including guest conductor Eric Thomas of Colby College, the Colby Symphony Orchestra, internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Kate Aldrich, tenor David Myers Jr., and pianist Steven Pane.
Internationally acclaimed Aldrich, born in Damariscotta, has performed with the San Francisco Opera, Metropolitan Opera, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, the Deutshe Oper Berlin, Opernhaus Zürich, and other leading operas in the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe. She has been hailed for her exceptional performances in the title roles in Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s Aida, Rossini’s La Cenerentola, and as Adalgisa in Norma, Charlotte in Werther, and Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier.
Thomas, the Colby Symphony Orchestra, Aldridge, Myers, and Pane will be joined by musicians from around the state, including Eric Christopher Perry and the Colby College Chorale, the Colby-Kennebec Choral Society, and teachers and students from Lawrence, Messalonskee, Skowhegan, Waterville, and Winslow schools. Concert-goers will be treated to several favorite American and international classics, including a John Williams suite featuring music from Spielberg and Lucas films; Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony; and Morton Gould’s American Salute.
Concert proceeds will fund technology upgrades at Inland RehabWorks to help patients of all ages recover from a wide range of injuries, including sports injuries, and live with less pain.
