True Concord Adds New Close-Up Series
True Concord is rich with talent, and we don’t want to keep it all to ourselves!
True Concord launches a new series in 2020-21: Close-Up!
Building on the past success of our solo recitals, first with Corinne Winters (with surprise guest Adam Smith, baritone), then Brian Giebler, True Concord begins the new and intimate Close-Up series highlighting our artists – guests and members of the True Concord ensemble – giving you a “front row” experience with their spectacular voices.
Performances are scheduled for Holsclaw Hall at the Fred Fox School of Music on the University of Arizona campus. This intimate-sized recital hall boasts lush and warm acoustics with every seat having a perfect view. You the audience will feel, hear and see each nuance of these superb artists’ performance.
Once you get a sense of who they are and the excellence of their talent, large scale True Concord concerts will take on an even richer insider’s feel.
