Three classically trained musicians will share their talents on October 1 to benefit The Lutheran Village at MILLER’S GRANT.
The concert, entitled “The Joys and Trials of Love,” features soprano Michelle Fegeas, tenor Mark Bublitz and pianist Jeongseon Choi.
Mark and Michelle will explore the gamut of emotions that love can bring. This includes the giddiness of innocent young love, the bliss of deep and passionate romance, the pain of grieving the loss of a lover, and more. The program will include music from the Romantic and early 20th century repertoire and two short scenes from Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Verdi’s La Traviata.
Mark Bublitz is a graduate of the vocal program at Towson University. His performances in operatic and musical theater extend throughout the Washington metropolitan area. He has performed on many occasions during the Bethesda Summer Music Festival, the most recent as the title role in “Sweeney Todd.” Since August 2016 Mark has led the tenor section and served as cantor at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.
