Saturday night, the second year of the Rites of Spring ended with its eighth concert: the incomparable soprano Masha Carrera sang Spanish, French and Italian songs, accompanied by Paolo Bartolani on a gorgeous Steinway & Sons piano. One not-to-be-missed moment was her captivating performance of Erik Satie’s Je te veux. (I want you). The pics of her singing are from that song. The picture of the view is what you see from the deck of Laurel Lake Vineyards, where the concert was held, but what you can’t see is that the sun set in beautiful pinks over the vines, behind and to the left of the performers. Also not pictured, sadly, was the gorgeous food and chocolate from the evening.
Next year’s Rites of Spring will again run April through June, and if events like this one–or the others in the series–interest you, please support next year’s series now, or even get involved in planning next year’s events.
