Kay Fairweather to narrate at December 2 Holiday Concert
Kay Fairweather of School Street will narrate the story of Hansel and Gretel as the Carlisle Chamber Orchestra plays selections from the popular children’s opera on Sunday, December 2 at 3 p.m. at Corey Auditorium. Vocalists Margretta Beaty (Witch), Robin Farnsley (Gretel) and Kathryn Tolley (Hansel) will delight the audience with their interpretations of the delightful tunes.
Kay is the author of Who’s Who in the Natural World, a unique collection that tells the story of over 300 species of wildlife found in Carlisle told with humor and scholarship. Originally from New Zealand, and along with being recognized for her environmental work, Kay was producer for many years of “Stellar A Cappella” in Concord and recently received a standing applause at the last performance at Riles Jazz Club for her promotion of a cappella groups.
This holiday concert is programmed for the entire family and includes “Russian Christmas Music,” Vivaldi’s “Concerto to Two Trumpets” and selections from Wicked and Frozen. All CCO performances are free with donations at the door greatly appreciated.
Carlisle resident members of the orchestra include Julie Durrell, John Glenn, Loretta Tramontozzi, Kathy Chick, Richard Chick, Jan Kinmonth and Poliana Yee.
