Out of the Bachs
The country’s oldest collegiate Bach Festival hits the road in collaboration with Westhuizen Duo and Verb Ballets for "Out of the Bachs,” a special evening of music, art, dance and food at 78th Street Studios in Cleveland.
The multisensory event features the love songs of Johannes Brahms intertwined with the popular music of Cole Porter and Ira Gershwin, with soloists, BW voice professor and mezzo-soprano Nancy Maultsby, and BW music theatre alumni Sara Masterson ’16 and Chris McCarrell ‘13, plus an alumni choir.
It’s a recipe for an evening of lush melodies, sensuous dance, keyboard artistry, food, spirits and fellowship in Northeast Ohio’s largest art and design complex with more than 40 galleries, studios and other creative spaces all under one roof. Art galleries will be open before the performance.
McCarrell, a northeast Ohio native, who continues to make his mark on the Great White Way has appeared in "Les Misérables" on Broadway, NBC’s "Peter Pan Live," and is set to star in "The Lightning Thief," opening Off-Broadway in March. He and Masterson will provide vocals on such standards as "Why Can’t You Behave," "Don’t Fence Me In," and "What is This Thing Called Love?"
