Join the Valentine's Day celebration at the Historic Wagner House in Downtown Clayton, for a concert by Jonathan Levin and two of his friends, "Tales of Love From Beethoven to Broadway", Saturday, Feb. 14th at 6pm. For ticket information call 919-585-1221.
Jonathan will be performing and will be joined by Violinist Michael Danchi and Mezzo Soprano Nora Graham-Smith. In addition to dinner, the event features an eclectic musical feast. “You’ll hear violin works, songs and musical theater numbers all transcribed for the piano, you’ll hear vocal works on the violin, and you’ll hear a mix of songs ranging from classical opera to Broadway hits”, says Levin, who will premiere a couple of his own piano transcriptions of songs from the Great American Songbook.
For the past few years Ms. Graham-Smith has sung roles in operas the world over, as well as in America, collaborating with great artists and conductors like Lorin Maazel. She is currently a resident artist at Opera Memphis in Tennessee.
Michael Danchi is no stranger to the triangle area, and has enjoyed a multi-faceted career as a violinist, composer, ballet dancer, sound engineer, and screenwriter. He has performed locally as a soloist with the Raleigh and Durham Symphonies and with the Carolina Ballet both as violinist and dancer.
After the concert there will be a reception where the audience will be able to mingle with the performers.
