Friday, April 17, 2020

On Friday, April 24, 2020 at 7:30 PM, Against the Grain Theatre is pleased to partner with Rue Pigalle to invite you to an inspiring virtual opera salon with tenor Matthew Dalen and pianist Holly Kroeker, who will be performing from their home. Matthew and Holly have chosen pieces, which they describe as “musical medicine for the heart.

“We have curated an evening of songs and arias that fill our hearts with joy,” says Holly. “In isolation, it is more important than ever to nourish our hearts and re-energize our spirits. These selections deal with love, infatuation, money, fear, loneliness, and incredible joy. They vary from sentimental and profound to sweetly funny. In times like these, we are all reflecting and taking stock of our lives. We hope that this recital will help you face tomorrow with your chin up, spirits high, and eyes on the future.”

This performance will be held through Zoom. After you have purchased your ticket, the Zoom link and password will be emailed to you.
