It will be a grand evening as the suns sets and the stars come out for The Sound of Music in Concert at Loon Mountain. When music on July 8 through 10, the voices of the North Country Center for the Arts summer performance company will be joined by some special guest artists.
Joining the cast of The Sound of Music in Concert will be Jane Cormier as the Mother Abbess. Cormier, a trained coloratura opera singer, has performed in both the US and Europe with roles in in Mozart’s “Queen of the Night,” “Lucia di Lammermoor,” as Violetta in “La Traviata”, as well as leading roles in operas by Menotti, Puccini, and Strauss.
She’s also known for musical theatre, having performed as Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of The Phantom of the Opera in Vienna, Austria. Her professional career began at the age of 18, and continues today with her return to the musical stage as the iconic Abbess. Jane is currently Choral Director at The Founmders Academy in Manchester and is Founder/Director of Piccola Opera right here in the Granite State.
And Cormier is not the only “guest” appearing in NCCA’s Sound of Music: six area youngsters will be appearing as the Von Trapp children, including Rosalie Brode from Bristol; Gavin Thibault and Patrick Gleich of Thornton; Molly Hazelton and Addy Allain of Plymouth; and Brook Lavoie from Whitefield.
The first partnership production between Jean’s Playhouse and Loon Mountain will be entirely outdoors, and take advantage of the stunning views of their Pemi Base Camp Location. The 3-performance-only show is the kickoff of the entire summer Season at the Playhouse, and also includes both Mainstage performers as well as their IMPACT children’s theatre troupe. Tickets are best purchased in advance as availability may be limited in this outdoor setting. Refreshments will be available onsite, but carry-in food/drinks are not permitted.
