- Barnett—The World Beloved: A Blue Grass Mass: The solemnity of classical music combines with the warm twang of banjo, mandolin, and fiddle to create a mass that sparkles with elation in this piece. Librettist Marisha Chamberlain said working on it brought back memories of music she heard while visiting her grandparents, “country music with a church flavor that told stories . . . . Grandma would not have allowed dancing, but under the table I tapped my toes.”
- Rodgers and Hammerstein—selections from Oklahoma!: The musical that helped people spell its title, Oklahoma! marked the first partnership between its legendary composer and librettist. When it opened on Broadway in 1943, it was an instant hit with audiences, captivating them with its cheery music while sneaking in a brief geography lesson. A score packed with classics includes such tunes as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “The Surrey With The Fringe On Top,” and “People Will Say We’re In Love.”<p>
Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society
For more than half a century, lovers of classical masterworks have turned to the kindred spirits of the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society. Led by Dr. Douglas Peterson, the choral group has earned national attention—appearing with Andrea Bocelli at the MGM Grand and performing a Carnegie Hall concert—but more than that, they’ve developed a powerful loyalty among their members. Dr. Peterson has been the director for 45 years, and Las Vegas City Life’s feature on the ensemble spotlights a solo by 83-year-old bass-baritone Neil Wilson in his 28th appearance.
