Concert: Amy Burton & John Musto
Wave Hill House
Dynamic husband-and-wife duo soprano Amy Burton and composer/pianist John Musto combine forces for a lively program of popular songs. At Wave Hill, they traverse the American Songbook, bringing us their beguiling interpretations of Cole Porter’s “I Love Paris”, Gershwin’s “The Man I Love” and “Let’s Face the Music and Dance” and “Blue Skies,” both by Irving Berlin.
Performance highlights for the duo include the cabaret room at New York’s Café Sabarsky and the Songfest Festival in Los Angeles. The artists’ songbook CD, Got a Little Rhythm, is available on the Bridge Records label. Ms. Burton has sung with the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera and at the White House. Mr. Musto has written four operas which have been performed at Wolf Trap Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, the Glimmerglass Festival and the Moab Music Festival. At Wave Hill, together they traverse the American Songbook, including “I Love Paris in the Springtime”, “Somewhere” and “The Man I Love”. Performances begin at 2PM and last approximately one hour with no intermission.
