Our own co-founding artistic director, pianist Laura Ward, recently performed with soprano Jennifer Aylmer and baritone Randall Scarlata in a program called “Tin Pan Alley at the Gardner”. Read the rave review in the Boston Musical Intelligencer. Excerpt from the review:
Soprano Jennifer Aylmer, baritone Randall Scarlata, and pianist Laura Ward in a program “Tin Pan Alley at the Gardner” delighted, fascinated, informed, and touched our hearts. Perhaps most surprising of all, the three transported many of us back to another time, uniquely American, to alternating states of the sublime to the ridiculous, this in a few blinks of the eye. All were absolutely top-notch.
Ms. Aylmer sang in our “Old City, New Song” program in 2008, and Mr. Scarlata sang in 9 Lyirc Fest programs; Laura has accompanied almost all Lyric Fest programs.
