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!
