Lady Jane's G&S Salon Concert

An "open mic” gathering held by the Duchess of Dunstable
Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School
11908 N. Lamar | Map | Free

Join us for the second musicale of the 2015-16 Gilbert & Sullivan season, as we present a musical afternoon of G&S favorites. The audience is invited to join in the performance (if so inclined), inspired by a regal young Duchess.

While the Duke is abroad entertaining ambassadors and handling Parliamentary matters, the Duchess of Dunstable, Lady Jane, has decided to throw a Salon Concert in the very large parlor of Dunstable House (aka, the Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood). You remember Lady Jane, don't you? She married The Duke of Dunstable at the end of the opera, Patience. She has invited several of her favorite musician friends to perform, and she also invites you to attend and sing as you wish from the G&S repertoire.

Ever since Lady Jane married the Duke and became the Duchess of Dunstable, her dull grey life has blossomed into a most beautiful garden of social gatherings and parties. She is “the hostess with the mostest,” holding salons on a regular basis. She has even procured a “salon” of hats and sundries, ready for your perusal and purchase.

Please come listen to, or even volunteer to sing, some of Lady Jane's favorite Gilbert & Sullivan tunes. Perhaps you want to assay Mable's "Poor wand'ring one" or Captain Corcoran's "Fair Moon."  Or perhaps you and a couple of friends would like to sing "Three little maids." Lady Jane's esteemed friend, the brilliant pianist Lady Jeanne Sasaki, will be present to accompany those who request it, so please bring along music for the piano. And if you admire the Duchess’s taste in hats and want to help the local G&S society raise money -- this is your chance! Lady Jane has offered up several hats from her own wardrobe to be sold for that very purpose.

This performance is free. Please bring a food or drink contribution for the reception and join us. Feel free to wear a hat!
