“HMS Pinafore (or, The Lass That Loved a Sailor)” with University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society

Just finished a great production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “HMS Pinafore (or, The Lass That Loved a Sailor)” with the University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society!

From a review by Wendy Wright, A2View.com, April 9, 2016 –

…the reason most people see a Gilbert and Sullivan production is for the music and music director Ezra Donner does not disappoint. Under his direction the large orchestra is nuanced and does not overpower the singers and the chorus sounds terrific.

    Dear Ezra,
    I grew up with Gilbert & Sullivan, knew all of them and sang Mabel in a camp production. Pinafore was a favorite. I’m delighted to know of your connection.
    I think of you fondly and wish you good luck and above all,much well-deserved happiness.
    Fondly,
    Barbara

    Dear Ezra, I’m delighted that you’re conducting G&S. These operas were a big part of my childhood, I knew them all and loved them. I went to Camp Modin where they produced one a year. Sang Mabel in Pirates of Penzance. My parents came up for the performance, and couldn’t believe their daughter had such a fine soprano, because I was always singing alto in our family singalongs. Thanks for keeping in touch. You know I have high hopes for you. And I send you my best blessing–Be Lucky. Love, Barbara
