Concert of Favorite Film Music in Greenwich Dec. 6

The Greenwich MasterSingers chorus will present a concert of selections from “Cinema’s Best Music” Sunday, Dec. 6, at 5 p.m., at the Greenwich Arts Center at 299 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich.

Conducted by internationally-lauded opera singer and vocal coach Pamela Kuhn, the concert promises to be a great vocal and theatrical experience. Pamela has selected a repertoire of sophisticated arrangements to be accompanied by pianist Dorothy Kolinsky (music teacher and Juilliard School of Music graduate from Stamford). Says Pamela “Since the golden era of Hollywood, from Bernard Hermann & Korngold to present day geniuses such as Thomas Newman and Howard Shore, music for film and film scoring is a unique and descriptive art form. I feel it is a classical genre of our time. And treasured melodies and songs from film themes are meant to be honored.”

Non-profit tickets, at $25 adults, $20 seniors/students, may be purchased from members of the chorus or at the door.

Pamela Kuhn’s MasterSingers chorus have performed at concerts and exclusive venues and events, such as the Gala Opening of the Greenwich Arts Council Arts Alive in September 2014. The repertoire has ranged from classical music, to jazz, to gospel music, to holiday favorites, to classics from the American Songbook. Some members of The MasterSingers are also part of The Angel Choir that performs at monthly concerts and accepts donations to support cancer victims and their families. Members of The MasterSingers are Linda Kennedy and Carol Willson of Cos Cob, CT; Dan Hague of Fairfield, CT; Janeen Bjork, Gina Bria, Starr Caswell, Christopher Jones, Sherry Krieger, Dan and Francoise Levin, Sue McClenachan, Wendy Mages and Marian Stern of Greenwich, CT; Stefanie Kies of Old Greenwich; Carolyn Cleveland and Lynette Lyon of Riverside, CT; and Ian Barto, Blake Blair, Ellen Gribben Bornet, Peggi De La Cruz, Annalisa DiNucci and Miriam Shaw of Stamford.
