The Principal Artist Program provides advanced college and emerging professional singers with the opportunity to perform featured roles in a fully staged opera with orchestra while exploring and refining Italian language and style skills.

r

There will be six featured singers: Rocio Valle, soprano (Mexico), Kahli Dalbow, soprano (Utah), Amelia Burshe, soprano (Boston), Hilary Law, mezzo-soprano (Boston), Eric Taylor, tenor (Utah), Kathryn Schwaar, soprano (Utah). These singers are part of the Principal Artist Program this summer and they will be studying specific opera roles with experienced and talented vocal coaches. They will also sing in Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” and compete in the Death by Aria vocal competition. World-famous singers Deborah Voigt, Wendy Bryn Harmer and Anthony Laciura have trained and mentored each singer.

r

This concert will include highlights from operas by Mozart, Puccini, Donizetti, Floyd and more. A small chamber ensemble will be featured with pianist Michael Leavitt and conductor Nicolas Giusti.

r

Sunday, Aug. 21, marks the launch of the 2016/2017 season of the Springville Arts Commission’s Sunday Concert Series. This monthly concert is offered on the third Sunday of each month at the Springville Museum of Art at 4:30 p.m. and is always free to the public. In August, the concert series will feature the Paredes family. Ligia Verduga Paredes holds a master’s degree in flute performance and education from the Antonio Neumane National Conservatory of Music in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

r

Also performing will be Luis Paredes, who holds a bachelor’s degree as a violinist from the same conservatory of music, and finally Samantha Paredes, who started her involvement in music at the age of 6. She was a finalist in the “First Night” singing contest at Provo Towne Centre. She is receiving vocal and singing lessons from Gioconda Vaca in American Fork.
