Ahead of her solo performance with Bach@7 Cantata Series in April of 2015, Jacqueline was kind to answer my 10 questions. Here is the full interview, which is also published by Choral Arts Philadelphia here.
I interviewed Donald Nally in 2010, when Lyric Fest collaborated with The Crossing Choir in the Biography in Music series. This program marked the 100th Anniversary of Samuel Barber (1910-1981), one of the 20th century’s most renowned and beloved composers. In the concert, Barber’s biography was featured alongside his songs, including several previously unpublished, opera excerpts, and choral works performed by The Crossing, with Nally conducting and Laura Ward at the piano.
DREAMS DO COME TRUE! Philadelphia’s audiences (English and Russian speaking) will have a unique opportunity to meet and to hear an unforgettable music-and-lecture performance by one of the most intelligent, passionate, brilliant, and caring people living on our planet today. Welcome to Philadelphia, Mikhail Semyonovich Kazinik!
