Sophia and Corey - The Songs of Mary
What a thrilling Concert Opener for the 2023-2024 Concert Season!
We launched our new season with the incomparable voice of nationally recognized soprano Corey Lovelace and our very own internationally recognized Composer in Residence and concert pianist Sophia Pavlenko. This touring concert was the critically acclaimed Songs of Mary arriving in town from its last performance in Washington, DC. The evening hypnotically showcased songs written about Mary, the mother of Jesus, throughout the ages. Spanning centuries of music, Corey and Sophia took us on a musical journey of discovery that explored Christ through the eyes and heart of Mary. These two exquisite artists gave us a truly stunning performance. All in attendance agreed that Sophia and Corey were absolutely mesmerizing this last Saturday night, October 7, at the Trinity Music Academy Season Opener in Troy, NC.
