What a fantastic season for LOONY! We released our first CD of Victor Herbert's Orange Blossoms and produced a delightful new production of Herbert's The Only Girl. Not resting on our laurels for a moment, we recently teamed up again with Albany Records and recorded The Only Girl, which will be available in late 2015. LOONY also produced a delightful series of concerts this past season; including Gypsies, Barons and Heirs; a night of German favorites and Keep the Home Fires Burning, a revue of songs from the World War 1 era.
Over the last two years, LOONY also has been very successful fundraising in order to increase the quality of our offerings and to be able to record and preserve rarely heard gems of early musicals and operetta. Since the beginning of 2014, LOONY has raised over $60,000 in grants and contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations in order to Bring Light Opera Out of the Dark. We are actively seeking to continue that success. If you would like to make a contribution, follow this link to learn how.
We are delighted to announce that we will be presenting Jerome Kern's Sally during our 2015-2016 season. Originally opening in 1920 at the New Amsterdam Theater, with a movie produced in 1929, the show contains the hit "Look for the Silver Lining". We also look forward to continuing our popular concert series. Keep an eye out here and also on Facebook for upcoming announcements.
