Intermezzo 3 (2002)


A favorite part of our season is our winter classical vocal recital! Our third annual Intermezzo program helped get us in just the right mood for our Christmas holidays!

December 14 and 15, 2002

Marcy and Gerald Horst, Directors

Pianists: Lori Ferguson, Clare Horst, Nancy Jorgensen, Mary Ann Welchel, Laura Zamzow

For 2002, ACT I’s Christmas Card to our audiences was this beautiful hour long recital of favorite Christmas music. The program was named in honor of that most popular of Christmas Carols, first performed in Austria on Christmas Eve, 1818. The performance began with a recreation of the first performance of Silent Night, using a tenor, bass, and guitar. The performance also ended with Silent Night, this time in a very contemporary treatment.

Before the performance, members of the audience were treated to caroling in the dining room and entrance hall by Sonshine; and were treated to a delicious table of hors d’oeuvres following.
