Broadway comes to Middleburg for the summer concert of the Middleburg Concert Series, featuring soloists Abby Foy Middleton and Benjamin Curtis who will sing selected songs from Broadway musicals. The program will also include performances by Middleburg Concert Series musicians in residence Dr. Alan Saucedo (cello) Cynthia Saucedo (violin) and Karen Chase (voice) as well as Daniel Miller (piano) and Miho Sato (voice). The concert will be June 5th at 4 PM at the historic Middleburg United Methodist Church, and will be benefit the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation to help women fight breast cancer. The increasingly popular Middleburg Concert Series strives to give back to the community by presenting one concert each year to benefit a local charity.
Abby Foy Middleton and Benjamin Curtis are both graduates of the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York and have performed in numerous operas, operettas and traditional musicals. Ms. Middleton’s roles include Liesl in The Sound of Music ,Marian in The Music Man and Beth in Little Women The Musical. Her lovely soprano voice has been described as “wistful at times, buoyantly hopeful at others”. Mr. Curtis’ rich bartione once described as having “roughly masculine vulnerability” has been a delightful addition to such roles as Billy Bigelow in Carousel, Bernando in the Asheville Lyric Opera’s production of West Side Story, and Marchese in La Traviata at the Berkshire Theater Festival.
The goal of the Middleburg Concert Series is to provide virtuoso performances to Middleburg residents and visitors in a small town setting.
The June 5th concert is open to the public and admission is free. Donations are requested and will be given to the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. Following the performance there will be a reception with light refreshments graciously provided by the Middleburg Bank, to afford an opportunity for the audience to meet the artists. The Middleburg United Methodist Church is located at the corner of Washington and Pendleton Streets . For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 540-303-7127.
