With the success of the Met’s HD broadcasts of its latest production of The Ring Cycle, the music of Richard Wagner is enjoying a resurgence of interest. Tonight’s Wagner Society of Hawaii (WSHI) meeting will feature a rare performance of the composer’s passionate song cycle Wesendonck Lieder by mezzo soprano Maya Hoover with pianist, HOT’s Head of Music, Beebe Freitas.  Hoover is a faculty member at UH Mānoa and one of the former hosts of HPR’s Great Songs.

The schedule for this event is as follows:

6:00 pm WSHI meeting (open to public); pupus, wine and a brief business meeting

7:15 pm Performance of Wesendonck Lieder

This will be free for WSHI members; $15 for HOT or HPR members and the general public (make checks payable to WSHI). Call Tracy at HOT 596-7372 or email t_jefferson@hawaiiopera.org to RSVP.
