Lohengrin Presentation

Jim Slouffman, President of the Wagner Society of Cincinnati, will be giving a talk on Lohengrin at 2:00pm this Sunday, February 20, at the German Heritage Museum located at 4764 West Fork Road, Cincinnati, Ohio.  Several Wagner Society of Cincinnati members are travelling to Chicago on March 5 for the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s production of Lohengrin, so this presentation will be a wonderful opportunity to learn about the opera and hear a bit of the music.

Our First Wagner Musicale

Wagner Society of Cincinnati’s first Wagner Musicale, an “All Hallow’s Eve Musicale” held on Halloween, was a compete triumph! The 1800s parlor musicale was reborn at the home of Trudie and Kurt Seybold. The artists who performed were amazing, delighting the 40 guests in attendance with singing, piano solos, and poetry reading.

Many thanks to our performers—Metropolitan Opera Sopranos, Alma-Jean Smith and Blythe Walker; Bass, Samuel Smith; and Pianist, Albert Muehlboeck—who performed works by:

  • Wagner (who else?)
  • Liszt
  • Meyerbeer
  • R. Strauss
  • Gounod
  • Boito
  • And others, as well as a spoken word presentation suitable to the season presented by WSC President and Founder, Jim Slouffman

Long live music!
