East Liberty Presbyterian Church & Westminster Presbyterian Church
Tickets on sale September 1
Celebrate Queen Victoria during the 200th anniversary of her birth. Created by Matthew Mehaffey, the Robert Page Music Director of the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, the show will feature an actress playing Victoria’s confidante, who will lead the audience through episodes of the Queen’s life in between short performances of music significant to her and her time. The MCP will present the concert on Saturday, May 18 at East Liberty Presbyterian Church, and Sunday, May 19 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Upper St. Clair.
Featured music will include Richard Wagner’s “Here Comes the Bride,” which was Victoria’s coronation music, as well as work by Johann Strauss, César Franck and Arthur Sullivan, all of whom composed pieces for Victoria. The show will conclude with an organ-backed rendition of “God Save the Queen,” and the audience is encouraged to sing along! If you enjoyed The Music of Downton Abbey in 2016, you’ll love Victoria!
