Bass-baritone Thomas Hammons performed “Bin ich nun frei?” from Das Rheingold and “Miei rampoli femminini” from Il barbiere di Siviglia. Pianist Kara Huber played Mikhail Pletnev’s “Nutcracker Transcription of Tchaikovsky” and Bill Cooley demonstrated his digital organ’s capabilities by entertaining us with his performance. Bravos and bravas abounded!
