Dear Friend of MDLO,
Today we kick off our Sharing Music, Sharing Love Tour!!!
MDLO is collaborating with baritone Javier Arrey in order to bring world class music and artistry to populations that do not have ready access to such things. The genesis of the project comes from Mr. Arrey's previous experience in his native Chile where he developed a program called "Niños a la Opera" in which he performed several concerts for children suffering from domestic abuse. Now, Mr. Arrey has teamed up with Brad Clark and Maryland Lyric Opera in order to reach specific populations in Maryland and around the region. We begin our journey today with a free concert at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD at their McAuley Chapel where we will perform for the hospital's patients, caregivers, and support staff as well as live streaming the performance to patient rooms.
The program includes two wonderfully uplifting song cycles in Czech by Antonín Dvořák: Biblické písně Op. 99 (Biblical Songs) & Cigánské melodie Op. 55 (Gypsy Songs). To close the concert, Arrey and Clark will perform the crowd favorite Largo al factotum from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia.
Additional performances to be held for area pediatric hospitals as well as for several shelters and transitional housing organizations in Montgomery and Prince George's Counties as well as the District of Columbia.
Special thanks go to out the folks at PianoCraft in Gaithersburg, MD for providing a grand piano this very special concert series.
