    Embracing the New Year

    A Salute to a Splendid Viennese Tradition

    Jung-Ho Pak, Conductor - Deborah Selig, Soprano - Andrew Garland, Baritone
    Embrace the New Year with graceful waltzes, playful polkas and popular tunes of Vienna’s “Waltz King,” Johann Strauss Jr. and his contemporaries. Soprano Deborah Selig and baritone Andrew Garland add a glorious touch.

    Ring in the New Year in Viennese style with the splendid music of Vienna's "Waltz King," Johann Strauss Jr., and his contemporaries. Graceful waltzes and playful polkas, including the Zigeunerbaron Overture (The Gypsy Baron), On the Beautiful Blue Danube, Bahn frei (Fast Track) and the Pizzicato Polka will sweep you off your feet. Soprano Deborah Selig and baritone Andrew Garland gloriously voice operetta excerpts from Strauss’ Die Fledermaus (The Bat) and Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Delightful music combined with delectable Viennese pastries make for a sweet and splendid way to embrace a New Year’s tradition once again!

    Deborah Selig, Soprano
    A charming soprano and performer, Selig is recognized for her rich, shimmering voice, her excellent artistic instincts and her fine execution of the lyric soprano repertoire. She has performed operatic roles and sung with a number of companies and orchestras including Kentucky Opera, Opera Roanoke, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Symphony.

    Andrew Garland, Baritone
    The New York Times has praised Garland for having a "distinctively American presence,". He is known for his engaging performances and for his interpretations on the recital stage in particular. Garland recently debuted several works by living American composers at Carnegie Hall and performed the title role in Don Giovanni with Opera New Jersey and Dancairo in Carmen with Boston Lyric Opera.
