Musical Celebrations Concert




Carrie Hennessey is a wayfinder through the deep, spiritual and technical discoveries of the voice.
Early success in the Metropolitan Opera Auditions led to high expectations, but singing after trauma in her early 20s dismantled the ease in her voice and presence. A top artistic mentor once reviewed, ‘This is not the same singer I heard 2 years ago. Go back home’, and a famous singer/coach exclaimed, ‘If you’d just sing like Renata Tebaldi…’ Hennessey left, losing her identity and voice.
Ms. Hennessey has since found her true voice and created a wildly unique and energized career path in theater, opera, symphony work, recital, and education, wearing with pride the hats of trauma-informed teacher and facilitator, producer, singer, actor, innovator and writer.

We are celebrating the beginning of our season with a program of popular favorites, poignant stories, and a world premiere. SOR joins the California Festival: A Celebration of New Music, with a world premiere work Unspoken Water by SOR’s own Principal Viola Jeff Ives. Soprano Carrie Hennessey joins us in singing two deeply moving works. First, Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo’s Cuatro Madrigales Amatorios, four intimately passionate and moving stories of love and loss. Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 next poignantly depicts a child’s happy memories of a summer evening while also reflecting on the profundity of life. Popular music of Mozart bookends this eclectic concert with the rousing Overture to “The Marriage of Figaro” and “Prague” Symphony. This is a concert with music for everyone.
