The Music Committee and Emmanuel Episcopal Church welcome Sharon Abreu and Michael Hurwitz in their group “Irthlingz” at the Brown Bag Concert on Wednesday, Aug. 14, at noon.
This popular summer concert series features island musicians who give their time and talent to fund the Virgil Cleveland Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship provides the opportunity for promising Orcas students to attend music camp.
Abreu was singing harmony by the age of three. In New York she sang in audience-attended master classes. She was a soloist for Morzart’s Requiem and Bach’s Magnificat and B Minor Mass with the Orcas Choral Society and for Mozart’s Vespers with Orchestra Seattle and the Seattle Chamber singers. Hurwitz has always sung and is known on Orcas for his joyful singing with The Parking Angels. Abreu and Hurwitz run Irthlingz Arts-Based Enviornmental Education and have performed at the NW Folklife Festival in Seattle and the World summit on Sustainable Development in South Africa. The program will be announcd from the stage.
