Great Waters Music Festival – Adrienne Danrich
Strains of “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens” will fill the air when Adrienne Danrich makes a return to Wolfeboro with her eclectic recital called My Favorite Things. All of the songs contained in her program mean a great deal to her. She will tie her personal stories and anecdotes about how the songs have come to be a part of her repertoire as she performs some familiar and perhaps some not so familiar songs with her beautiful soprano voice. Included will be songs from the American Songbook, Broadway, Opera and traditional spirituals.
Ms. Danrich is an alumna of the Eastman School of Music and the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and while still a student there she was commissioned by the Cincinnati Opera to write This Little Light of Mine: The Stories of MarianAnderson ad Leontyne Price which won a 2011 National Academy of Television Art and Sciences Chicago/Midwest Emmy. She has also written and performed An Evening in the Harlem Renaissanceinspired by the life of Langston Hughes and Echoes ofthe Harlem Renaissance. Her latest endeavor is her newly written one-woman show, Love & Trouble: Five Personas – One Voice. She will be accompanied by pianist Djordje Nesic.
