Sun 4/5 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm: Opera performance by Singaporean soprano, Jennifer Lien. Here is her promotion:
Greetings from still-wintry Wisconsin, where it is in the balmy 20s today. I'm hopeful that spring is around the corner, but missing everybody back in the Bay Area a great deal during this time of year! I'm writing to let you know, however, that I will be returning to Berkeley to perform in Haydn's The Creation on Palm Sunday. This is a special concert presented by the First Presbyterian and First Congregational Churches of Berkeley, with 120 voices and a wonderful professional chamber orchestra. I will be singing with the fabulous tenor Brian Thorsett and baritone Chad Runyon for this concert. It is a big, demanding piece, and I am so very excited to have the opportunity to sing it with such a fantastic group of musicians! Here's what you need to know (I've also attached a poster for your reference - it is below): Dates: Sunday, April 5, 2009 Time: 7:30 PM (pre-concert lecture at 7:00 PM) Location: Sanctuary, First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley Admission: Free (a free-will offering will be taken) Address: 2407 Dana St, Berkeley CA Parking and childcare info: http://www.fpcberkeley.org/choirconcert.asp (childcare is by reservation). You can also take BART; Berkeley BART is a 10-minute walk from Shattuck near University. These concerts tend to fill up quickly, so I would recommend coming early (for the pre-concert talk!) to stake out your space (as well as a parking space!) If you do come, please stop by to say hi afterwards! Yours most sincerely, Jennifer Lien P.S. I also want to let you know that plans are in the works to bring one of my recent solo recitals back to the Bay Area this fall (in both the South Bay and the East Bay). I will let you know once things are firmed up!
