Jolly to sing recital in Davis on Nov. 4

In addition to her appearance with the Sacramento Choral Society on Sunday, soprano Katherine Jolly has a recital coming up the following Sunday, Nov. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 27074 Patwin Road in Davis. Tickets are $20 general and $15 for students.

“This will be my first piano-voice recital in Davis since 1995,” Jolly noted with some surprise; she’s been busy performing around the country in recent years. “I will be working with pianist Curt Pajer — he is the music director of the opera program at the San Francisco Conservatory, where he has been on the faculty since 2010. Before that, Curt and I worked together in St. Louis and in New York.”

Jolly will be singing the aria “Basta, vincesti, Ah non, lasciarmi, no!” by W.A. Mozart; the
Quatro Madrigales Amatorios by Joaquin Rodrigo; and “Honey and Rue,” with music by Andre Previn, incorporating a text by novelist and Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison.

” ‘Honey and Rue’ is a song cycle that was commissioned for soprano Kathleen Battle, and it has some super-esoteric harmonic language, as well as some jazz in it,” Jolly said. “It ends with a spiritual-like movement. I have been wanting to sing it since I heard it years ago at age 16.”

Jolly is enjoying living and teaching voice in Davis. (Prospective students can look her up at www.katherinejollysoprano.com.) “I also teach some yoga to my voice students, breathing and singing are so connected.”

Jolly is also “getting ready to do more concerts and recitals on the road… I’ve got dates on the Gulf Coast of Florida, in Philadelphia, and in Virginia. Last year I was on the road nonstop. This has been my first fall on the West Coast since 1995.”
