Deborah Selig – Soprano, David McFerrin – Baritone, Jerry Noble – Pianist
Combining talents to present a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the First World War, this Boston area trio brings a moving American musical collage to the stage. A striking and versatile artist, Ms. Selig has sung with orchestras and choruses across the United States, including Chautauqua Opera. Her voice has been described as “radiant,” “beautifully rich,” “capable of any emotional nuance,” and “impressively nimble.” Baritone David McFerrin has won critical acclaim in a wide variety of repertoire and was praised by The Miami Herald for his “commanding stage presence and a voice of seductive beauty.” Clifton J. “Jerry” Noble, Jr.’s musical compositions and arrangements are requested and performed by singers and instrumentalists around the world. This concert is dedicated to the powerful song literature of the WWI era composed by Claude Debussy, Charles Ives, George Cohan, Irving Berlin, and many others.
