<<< << -- 4 -- Laura Kennelly AN AUTHENTIC VOICE -- >> >>>
Carl Fernstrum, Caroline Gehrke, Jose Gotera, Sharon Lloyd, Molly McGinnis, Larry Sheir, Brenda Wepfer and Martin Wingate made up a superb chorus that sounded like more than eight people, producing rich full sound when called upon. (Opera choruses are a favorite -- I'd love to have heard more.) Pianist Jeanette Davis Ostrander supplied the accompaniment with a sure and musically persuasive touch. Kathryn Harsha was music director and Matty Sayre was stage manager.
