At Saturday’s Bach Aria Soloists concert with the Kansas City Chorale, you will surely thrill to the evening’s featured soloists: Lindsey Lang, soprano, David Adams, tenor, and Katherine Crawford, alto. Each has appeared on the Kansas City Chorale’s Grammy-winning recordings and are formidable artists in their own right.
Lindsey Lang most recently appeared with BAS at February’s Opus 22 concert (when she ably stepped in for an ailing Sarah Tannehill Anderson) and at last season’s BAS Sings! She is noted for her bold interpretation of early music with a “tone [of] pure, radiant sunshine.” She is a featured soloist on the Kansas City Chorale’s Grammy-winning recording Life and Breath. In addition to her work with the Chorale, Lindsey frequently performs with Prometheus, the Simon Carrington Chamber Singers, Sacabuche and the Spire Chamber Ensemble.
At Saturday’s concert, Lindsey will be featured in the Bach Soprano Cantata Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut (My heart is bathed in blood), BWV 199.
David Adams has performed in a variety of settings throughout the United States, including as a soloist with the Metropolitan Opera, Santa Fe Opera, New York City Opera and Fort Worth Opera. He received Grammy acknowledgement for his participation as a soloist on Life and Breath. David enjoys performing a wide variety of musical genres, and is considered a specialist in the works of Rossini, Handel and Mozart.
At Saturday’s concert, David will be featured in Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb Festival Cantata, Op. 30.
Katherine Crawford enjoys performing in the styles of opera, operetta and musical theater, and is especially interested in contemporary and experimental works. She holds a Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri-Kansas Cityand a Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from St. Olaf College, where she sang in the St. Olaf Choir under the direction of Dr. Anton Armstrong. Originally from Minnesota, she is a former member of the Ensemble Singers of VocalEssence.
At Saturday’s concert, Katherine will be featured in Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb Festival Cantata, Op. 30.
And, Sarah Tannehill Anderson!
As a member of Bach Aria Soloists and the Kansas City Chorale, soprano Sarah Tannehill Anderson will be featured in two works: the Bach Soprano Contata with Lindsey Lang, and Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo’s Dark Night of the Soul, originally commissioned by Charles Bruffy, artistic director of the Kansas City Chorale
