After intermission, pianist Mary Pinto will play cabaret-style piano tunes followed by Meryl, Eric and Matthew performing Broadway melodies that were influenced by the operas, including "Somewhere" from West Side Story, "Someone to Watch Over Me" from Oh, Kay! and "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific.

Narration by music educator Lou Barrella will offer insight into the background of the operas and arias. Full program.

Performers September Song

This concert will be especially wonderful for opera newcomers. They can dip their toes into the music without driving in and buying full tickets to the Met this season. It is a wide sampling of styles and will leave everyone with something to enjoy.

-Meryl Dominguez

I'm very excited to sing my first concert with Opera at Florham! I've only heard great things about Opera at Florham and can't wait to be a part of it. My favorite selection has to be "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific. I'm such a fan of this music. I don't get my feet wet into musical theatre often, so when the opportunity arrives, I really have fun with it!
