The Windham Festival Chamber Orchestra will return for their annual Thanksgiving weekend concert, this year performing works by Mozart, Scarlatti, Finzi, Grieg, and Handel. This concert will feature soprano Nancy Allen Lundy, who is making her second appearance at the Catskill Mountain Foundation, following her performance in 2011 as part of Sato Moughalian's CELLO! concert. Ms. Lundy has earned critical acclaim for her unique vocal beauty, skillful musicianship and theatrical prowess in a wide variety of classical and contemporary styles throughout the world. Robert Manno is music director of the Windham Chamber Music Festival.As a conductor, he has led performances of La Bohème, Madama Butterfly, Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, Copland's Appalachian Spring and Quiet City, the String Serenades of Elgar, Suk, Dvorak and Tchaikovsky, and many of his own compositions.
"[Robert Manno's] instrumental compositions are shot through with powerful lyrical impulses. Manno's music, in whatever guise, always sings ... his poetry settings are also successful, displaying an expansive, well-rounded sense of architecture and shape...."
"[Soprano Nancy Allen Lundy's] beautiful, luminous timbre and fearless high register ... matched by a pure, firmly focused core of tone and exquisite word painting and textual clarity."
