CU New Music Festival will feature 2 guest performers
Soprano Amelia Love will headline Cameron University's New Music Festival at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
The concert takes place in the McCutcheon Recital Hall, located in the Music Building of the Louise D. McMahon Fine Arts Complex, and is open to the public at no charge. Cameron's New Music Festival is made possible by Cameron University Lectures and Concerts Series.
Amelia Love will perform a variety of post-modern and contemporary music, including selections written by her husband, Joel Love, who will accompany her on piano.
Amelia Love made her professional debut as Barbarina in "Le Nozze di Figaro" with Austin Lyric Opera in 2013. She regularly returns to Austin to perform as Musetta in LOLA Production's all-female rendition of "La BohËme."
She enjoys bringing a quirky sense of humor to her characters. Jeff Davis of Broadway World Opera praised her performance in Princess Ida, "As Lady Psyche (... Amelia Love) gives a fantastic performance, and her rendition of 'A lady fair of lineage high' (was) a comedic highlight of the evening."
As a young artist with Opera Theater Pittsburgh in the summer of 2016, Amelia Love performed Christina in a commissioned chamber opera, "The George Washington Suite," by living composer Daron Hagen. While pursuing her master's degree at the University of Texas at Austin, she performed Babs in Hagen's "New York Stories," Adele in "Die Fledermaus," Cugina in "Madama Butterfly" and Zerlina in "Don Giovanni." Other roles include Susanna in "Le Nozze di Figaro" and Pamina in "Die Zauberflˆte," as well as several Gilbert and Sullivan roles.
