Oct. 1: "Viva la Voce!" with Raylynmor Opera Performers

Guilford, Vt. -  Now in its 52nd season, Friends of Music at Guilford (FOMAG) has a long history with "Stage Music Projects." These have ranged from musical theater song revues to concerts of arias and art song presented by some of the region's acclaimed operatic performers. Also in the mix were fully staged but less well-known Broadway or off-Broadway shows and premieres of one-act or full-length operas created by some of the organization's musically gifted founders, among other composers.
 
This fall, FOMAG is teaming up with New Hampshire's Raylynmor Opera for a concert at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 1, in the sanctuary of Guilford Community Church, a program of the singers' favorite arias. Since its founding in 1995, Raylynmor has presented 38 full-length operas at various locations in our "twin state." Raylynmor's artistic director since 2014 is tenor Benjamin Robinson, who has performed in professional productions and concert settings from Alaska to the East Coast. He was featured in Pirates of Penzance for Raylynmor in 2011 and has helped diversify and expand the organization's vision since taking the reins.

Romantic... Almost

I came by,
Hoping to admire you
from a distance.

It did not work out.
In your absence
I had coffee
and an apple cinnamon muffin.

Anti-War Songs

Last night I kept waking up with a song in my head. A song about a WWI casualty named Willie McBride.

I searched this morning and found the original: “The Green Fields of France” (No Man’s Land)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxkhBvO8_kM,
an anti-war ballad by Scotsman-turned-Australian Eric Bogle.

Bogle has written another which is perhaps the most poignant anti-war anthem ever: “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG48Ftsr3OI

One verse refers to “The legless. The armless, the blind, the insane”
