On Sunday, May 7, 2023, the Howard County Concert Odyssey presented James Harp – Piano and Opera at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ellicott City.
This early Mother’s Day gift received rave reviews and requests for an encore performance next year. The marvelous talent of James Harp, and the voices of sopranos Colleen Daly and student Isabel Marcus, and baritone Tim Mix wowed the audience with standard opera arias, plus Broadway musical songs and numbers from the American Songbook. Each performer excelled and brought talent coupled with passion to the concert.
Afterwards, audience members were treated to a reception featuring delicious baked goodies prepared by Board members Diane Lichtenberger and Lissa Bounds Hammond. The reception was the perfect ending to a memorable afternoon.
