Hoff Barthelson Seniors Perform Graduation Recital

sopranosFour graduating sopranos from Scarsdale High School gave a recital at Hoff –Barthelson on Monday night June 19, presenting a delightful array of classical and contemporary selections. The concert was the culmination of years of music and voice lessons at Hoff-Barthelson, celebrating their considerable accomplishments.

The performers included sisters and twins Josie and Louisa Blatt with Jane Glaser and Caroline Kaufman. Each performed as a soloist, in duets and as a group when they sung Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and completed the concert with a medley of Disney songs.

Along the way, there were two songs from Hamilton, the Musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, a musical rendition of the poems of Emily Dickinson, and a performance of Carole King's "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" by Josie Blatt who played the piano to accompany herself singing the well-loved song.

Louisa Blatt used her powerful voice and dramatic presentation skills to sing Franz Schubert's "Die Forelle" in German as well as "Happy to Keep his Dinner Warm" from the show, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Jane Glaser charmed the audience with her rendition of Carmichael's "Skylark" and Caroline Kaufman gave a beautiful and moving performance of the song "Reflection" from Mulan, also by Lin Manuel Miranda.

The concert was a treat for everyone lucky enough to be there. Bravo to the vocalists.
