Tenor, pianist team for music, lunch program

SEQUIM — “The Poet’s Love” by Robert Schumann, the patter song from Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Sorcerer” and “Ombra mai fu” from Handel’s opera “Xerxes” come together at noon Tuesday courtesy of lyric tenor Carl Kaiser and pianist Lorraine Martin.

Theirs is another concert in the Music Live with Lunch series at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave.

Right after the 30 minutes of music, the Live with Lunch crew will serve a hot meal in the parish hall.

Tickets, including music and meal, are $10, and reservations can be made by phoning the St. Luke’s office at 360-683-4862.

Tuesday’s pair brings formidable musical histories: Kaiser, who holds a master’s degree in vocal performance from Catholic University of America, sang in the opera houses of Europe; among his roles were the Duke in “Rigoletto,” Rodolfo in “La Boheme” and Lt. Pinkerton in “Madama Butterfly.”

Kaiser also taught voice at Indiana and Western Michigan universities before he and his wife, Susan, retired to Sequim last year.

He’s now a member of the St. Luke’s choir.

Martin studied piano at the Juilliard School in New York City and at Hamline University and the University of Minnesota.

She has performed across North America and abroad, and is now the choir director and organist at St. Luke’s.

In addition to donating her time for Tuesday’s Music Live with Lunch, Martin will present “An Easter Evensong,” a program of music and ballet, at 5 p.m. Sunday at St. Luke’s.

To find out more about Music Live with Lunch, which contributes proceeds from its monthly concerts to local charities, phone organizer Carolyn Braun at 360-452-0495.
