The last performance in the Sunday Concert Series for this season (there will be no concerts during June and July) will be given by soprano Louise Huber Payne on Sunday, May 19, at 4:30 p.m. at the Springville Museum of Art, 126 E. 400 South, Springville. This concert series is free to the public and is sponsored by the Springville Arts Commission.
Payne, a soprano, has been singing for as long as she can remember. She has been singing professionally since 1985 and coaching voices since her first pedagogy class as a performance/pedagogy major at Brigham Young University in 1985. She also earned a double major in elementary education and currently works as a substitute teacher.
Payne has had joy singing and acting in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ production of “Savior of the World” with her oldest two children. She has sung with Opera West, Utah Opera, Utah Lyric Opera, BYU Opera and Theater and Indiana’s Lafayette Civic Theater and Operetta as well as performed with local community theaters including Springville’s “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” in 1994. She has given educational presentations on opera and the arts at schools and gives marriage enrichment presentations for couples and families with her husband, Tom. Payne will present a variety of songs in the genres of musical theater, opera and art song.
Mark your calendars as our next scintillating season begins Sunday, August 18, 2019. The Red Desert Ramblers headline on November 17th and the Utah Valley Hand Bell Choir will present their annual Christmas concert on Sunday, December 8th. Many other performers will be featured on the third Sunday of every month.
