Grant Gershon & Friends
Little Matchgirl Passion and Other Musical Intimacies
September 19, 2014

Boston Court's Fall Music Series generously sponsored by Elaine Kramer and Al Latham.

Boston Court's Fall Music Series is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.

The multi-talented Grant Gershon returns this season with singers Elissa Johnston, Adriana Manfredi, and Cedric Berry to perform David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion, a secular passion play based on the tale by Hans Christian Andersen of an abused child who wanders, shoeless and sick, through the snow on New Year's Eve trying to sell matches, hoping to be reunited with her dead grandmother.  Her frozen body is found the next morning.  Four a capella singers provide their own percussive accompaniment, and Grant will not only conduct but sing the tenor role as well.

Tickets are $25/$20 for Seniors
