50th Anniversary World Premiere

July 15 - 50th Anniversary Premiere with the GNPQ, Tasha Koontz & Brandon Morales

Her New Home for soprano, baritone, and piano quartet – Polina Nazayskinskaya (b. 1987)
libretto by Konstantin Soukhovetski

Scene I
William’s Arioso
Christine’s Arioso
Scene II – Finale

Her New Home was commissioned by Garth Newel Music Center for the 50th Anniversary celebratory year. As a chamber opera, it tells the story of Christine Herter Kendall (Garth Newel’s Founder) and the love affair with William Sergeant Kendall that led them to create Garth Newel, which the couple named because it meant “New Home” in Welsh.

The commission of Her New Home has been made possible through the generous funding of Tom and Mary Evelyn Tielking
