The English-Speaking Union is about bringing English in Action. All ESU members and guests are invited to a wonderful program that does just that—brings English in Action.
On December 7, 2018, the Bach Aria Soloists and the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival come together to present a special seasonal collaboration, A Winter's Tale in Words and Song. This extraordinary program combines scenes from Shakespeare's greatest plays with music composed by Bach, Handel, Vivaldi and Cecilia McDowall and more.
The talented musicians of the Bach Aria Soloists, led by Elizabeth Suh Lane, artistic director and violin, include Elisa Williams Bickers, harpsichord, Sarah Tannehill Anderson, soprano, and Hannah Collins, cello.
Some of Kansas City's favorite classically trained actors, with script in hand and directed by HASF's Sidonie Garrett, will bring Shakespeare's scenes to vivid life. This winter-time story will touch your heart and tickle your funny bone!
