“ABS Exclusives” are opportunities for patrons to meet, greet, and hear ABS musicians and ABS Academy alumni in up-close-and-personal house concert events. Limited to 25 seats or less on each date, “ABS Exclusives” include a concert, hors d’oeuvres, and plenty of wine. Following the concert, audience members have an opportunity to visit with the musicians on a one-on-one basis.
Hélène Brunet, soprano & Steven Bailey, piano
Canadian soprano Hélène Brunet—possessing ”a voice of perfect beauty and a radiant stage presence” (L’Opéra, Revue Québécoise d’Art Lyrique)—enthralled ABS audiences in Bach’s Saint Matthew Passion last season. Together with the superb accompanist Steven Bailey, she will present a recital of music that she loves including works in English, French, and German by Edvard Grieg, André Previn, and others.
Presented at the Orinda home of Jose & Carol Alonso
