Nancy Peery Marriott joins BYU Chamber Orchestra for April 1 concert

Brigham Young University’s School of Music presents the Chamber Orchestra in concert with guest artist lyric soprano Nancy Peery Marriott Thursday, April 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets are $11, $10 or $8 with a student ID and can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting byuarts.com.

The concert will begin with “Let the Bright Seraphim” from “Samson” by George F. Handel, followed by the Symphony No. 5 in B flat major by Franz Schubert. Marriott will then perform Mozart’s “Exultate, Jubilate” and “Adele’s Laughing Song” from “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauss Jr. The concert will conclude with “Incidental Music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy.

Originally from Palo Alto, Calif., Marriott has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Wolf Trap in Virginia, Strathmore Hall in Maryland and Boston’s Symphony Hall. Recently, she was featured at the Alaska Opera Arts Festival, the National Theatre and Cincinnati’s Anderson House Fall Concert Series.

Marriott has also been a featured guest soloist with the Mormon Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. Later this year, she will perform at the Alaska Summer Arts Festival and will debut at Carnegie Hall in December.

In 2008, Marriott created the Nancy Peery Marriott Visiting Artist Endowment to bring professional artists and teachers to BYU each year to hear and train the best students during a brief residency.
