Residents at Magnolia Manor will soon be treated to "An Afternoon of Song" from Richmond Hill resident Jason Moon. The event is slated for June 11th at 1:30pm at Magnolia Manor. Moon will be accompanied by pianist Quynh Shannon. The event is a part of retirement facility’s Renaissance Living Initiative.
Moon volunteers his time to host a weekly class at Magnolia Manor called "Introduction to Sacred Music."
A baritone originally from Korea, Moon is currently finishing his Doctor of Music degree in Vocal Literature and Performance at Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University. He made his U.S. debut with the Opera Theater of St. Louis as Yakuside in Madam Butterfly in 1997. He has recently settled in Richmond Hill and performed the role of Barone in La Traviata with the Savannah Choral Society.
Shannon was born in 1975 and was educated in Hanoi, Vietnam. She has performed some of the concerto repertoire with orchestra, most recently performing Ravel’s G Major piano concerto and various Mozart concerti. She feels a particular affinity with the German Romantic repertoire and as such has enjoyed particular success with Schumann’s Piano concerto. Shannon has been resident in Savannah since February 2007.
In addition to the Magnolia Manor performance, Moon and Shannon will also perform "An Evening of Song" at the Skidaway Island United Methodist Church on Friday, June 20th at 7:30 pm. The performance at the church is free and open to the public.
