While both Musicals and Operas are written upon pre-existing narratives, each discipline demands from their performers a distinctive set of vocal skills and artistic perception. Unlike operatic singing which a rounded, open tone fits the soaring tunes of their protagonists, musical theatre singers strive for rhetorical singing, real emotions like actors and actresses and physical strength and flexibility like dancers. This Friday, harpist Judy will join soprano Jessica - who temporary leaves her opera casts behind for a happy hour - and bring you a delightful evening of musical excerpts.
Harp takes the stage! Judy Ho (08.04 & 03.06) and Jennifer Ho (08.04 & 06.05) from the Symmetry Duo are featured in three concerts together with their music partners cellist Bernard Chan (08.04), violinist Mark Hui (06.05) and flutist Brian Chan (03.06). The first concert brings us the rarely heard harp duo pieces rearranged from well-loved classical works by French and Spanish composers such as Saint Sean’s Carnival of Animals.
