I hope that you and yours are staying healthy, both physically and mentally, in these crazy times.

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston was supposed to perform “The Yeomen of the Guard” at the Hobby Center this summer, but, as has been the case with so many things, we were forced to postpone until next year.

But we have not been idle.

This Saturday at 8pm CDT we will be holding a virtual concert.  I’ll be singing “When Jealous Torments Rack My Soul”, a wonderful number from Yeomen that was unfortunately cut after opening night in 1888 because it interrupted the flow of the plot too much. Several other performers from our postponed production will be featured, including Alistair Donkin, and the concert will open and close with numbers by the Savoyard Singers, our standing chorus.

I hope you can join us for an hour of merriment this Saturday at 8.


I will be participating in the Houston Gilbert and Sullivan Society‘s annual gala, An Auction of Arias, at 7pm on Friday, February 21, at Ouisie’s Table in River Oaks. Our Auction of Arias lets you shape the evening’s entertainment! Guests at the event can bid for the chance to select the next song to be performed. The opportunities will come in three courses: Appetizer, Main Course, and Dessert. The winning bidders can choose from a select number of options for that course, including arias, musical theater, and Gilbert and Sullivan favorites. If the bidding reaches certain levels, guests can even unlock extra performances by one of our featured soloists.

Whether I will sing or not is up to you…high bidder gets to pick the next song over the course of the evening. Coupled with a silent auction and the always amazing cuisine served at Ouisie’s Table, this is an event you do not want to miss.
