Metropolitan Opera soprano Danielle Talamantes and her husband, bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson, will perform a Lighter Fare Series program devoted to classics from the Great American Songbook and musical theater. From Gershwin to Ellington to Bernstein and Sondheim, the couple, accompanied by Joseph Holt on piano, combine forces to bring their special chemistry and extraordinary voices to iconic tunes everybody knows and loves. This concert is January 18 at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at Plantation Golf and Country Club in Venice.

The Soireé Series at the Fischer/Weisenborne residence continues January 29 at 4:00 p.m. and January 30 at 7:30 p.m. with celebrated violinist Steven Moeckel, concertmaster of the Santa Fe Opera. This program features the works of women composers including Amy Beach, Frances Ulric Cole, Jesse Montgomery, and Florence Price. Refreshments are served following each performance.
