Meet my newest musical collaborator, Melissa Culloton. I got to know Melissa by working with her this past spring on the convention committee for the Minnesota Music Teachers Association (see the “Monday Music Madness” edition of this blog). Now, for some strange reason, temporary insanity probably, Melissa has asked me to be her pianist for The Singers: After Dark! which will take place at Hell’s Kitchen on August 29 .
This event is a production of The Singers—Minnesota Choral Artists, widely recognized as one of the premier professional choirs in, well, the whole world. “After Dark”, now in its 3rd year, allows choir members to goof off a bit (read: sing standards and show tunes instead of classical music, and drink while doing it). It’s also a neat way to launch their 2016-2017 season.
So please come to Hell’s Kitchen on August 29 to hear Melissa, me, and many others strut our stuff. Doors open at 6, show goes 7-9. Tickets are available at the door ($15) or in advance ($10, until August 28)
