SOPRANO DANIELLE WOERNER AND PIANIST SUSAN ACETO IN CONCERT,

“TO BE SUNG UPON THE WATER,” FRIDAY, SEPT. 22nd, 2017 AT 7 P.M.,

PRESENTED BY SCHOODIC ARTS FOR ALL

 

 

On Friday evening, September 22nd at 7 P.M., soprano Danielle Woerner and pianist Susan Aceto will perform a concert of classical art songs called “To Be Sung Upon the Water” at Schoodic Arts for All’s Hammond Hall, in Winter Harbor.

“Susan and I have enjoyed putting together some of our favorite songs that deal with water in many forms,” says Woerner, who is also co-founder of the Sunrise CountyArts Institute in Milbridge.  “Our audience will hear stories of oceans, streams, ice, tears—and mermaids, too.   Ever since my husband and I migrated from the Catskill Mountains to live right by the sea, it’s been a natural idea for a program.”

The concert, named after a song by Franz Schubert, also includes music by Clara Schumann, Henri Duparc, Francis Poulenc, Hector Berlioz, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Xavier Montsalvatge and Joaquin Rodrigo.

The program is a variation on one the singer and pianist gave earlier this summer with great success at the Eastport Arts Center.  “We’re happy to be able to bring it closer to home—in our cases, Milbridge and Roque Bluffs,” says Woerner, “and we were delighted when SAFA liked the idea.”

Admission is $15.00.   Hammond Hall is located at 427 Main Street in Winter Harbor, ME.
