Chapman University’s Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music is taking their show on the road again. After a successful tour in Texas this January, some of our vocal majors and faculty are heading to Boston for three exclusive ensemble performances, June 6-8. Performances will include a variety of operatic standards and musical theater selections. The group’s third performance, during the Sunday worship service at Eliot Church in Newton, Mass., will include religious and oratorio selections as well as some secular music. All performances are free and open to the public.
- June 6, 2014 – Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA
- June 7, 2014 – Community House, South Hamilton, MA

The ensemble will include five vocal performance majors: Daniel Shipley ’15, Alexandra Rupp ’17, Kevin Gino ’ 14, Kylena Parks ’15 and Andrei Bratkovski ’15. They will be led by Chapman’s Director of Operatic Studies, Peter Atherton and Opera Chapman music director, Cheryl Lin Fielding. Dr. Atherton has performed to acclaim with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, L’Orchestra de la Suisse Romande, Basel Chamber Orchestra and many others. Dr. Fielding is a celebrated pianist whose performances have taken her to Japan, Taiwan, Italy and throughout the United States including the Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Weill Recital Hall and many others.
A Bright Future
In spring 2015, the college will host the grand opening of the Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts. This world-class 1,100-seat facility represents Chapman University’s commitment to the arts, and is destined to become an extraordinary venue for live performances in Southern California.
