Continue the St. Patrick’s weekend celebration with opera singers Laurie Lindemeier & Kyle Hancock, and pianist Robert Goodwin.
They’ll share music from or about the Emerald Isle … and Scotland, too. “Oh Danny Boy,” “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows,” “That’s an Irish Lullaby,” “The Last Rose of Summer,” “The Sweetest Flower That Blows,” “It Was a Lover and His Lass,” “Killarney,” “The Bonnie, Bonnie Banks of Loch Lohmond,” “The Parting Glass” and other classics.
Laurie Lynn Lindemeier, classical soprano, sang several seasons with the Dallas Opera. Laurie lives in Uptown Dallas where she is a medical editor and a staff church singer. She studied English literature as an exchange student at the University of Exeter in England and was a nanny for a family in southern Germany. Her degree is from Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota where she grew up on a farm. Although opera is her first love, Laurie also enjoys musical theater, jazz, and folk tunes. She’s an active performer with the nonprofit org. Opera on Tap.
Laurie has blogged on travel, theater, and the arts for D Magazine, Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Dallas Morning News, and her own WordPress blog: LLLOpera. She often illustrates her blog with watercolor paintings and has been known to sit in a corner of her favorite hangouts and paint for hours. Her paintings also appear in her memoir, a work in progress, in which she tells how a dairy farmer’s daughter happily ends up as a classical soprano and writer in Dallas, Texas.
