Murray, DeVore Premiere Arias

Two collaborations by librettist Douglas Murray (Department of English) and Rachel DeVore Fogarty (School of Music) received their world premiere on October 3 at a concert at Trinity Presbyterian Church devoted to the music of Rachel Fogarty. These arias (“First Light of Silver Sea” and “To Be Again What Once She Was”) are selections from a work in progress, the opera Persuasion, based on the novel of the same name by Jane Austen. The selections were performed by Sabrina Laney Warren (soprano) and Rachel DeVore Fogarty (piano).
