April 29, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES I, II, III & IV • Page 19 Concert to support church’s barrier-free upgrades New York City-based tenor Clinton Ingram will perform Sunday, May 3, at 4 p.m. at Ridgewood’s Christian Reformed Church, 271 Lincoln Avenue, joined by organists Karen Popjes and Viktoriya Raufova. Admission is free, but an offering will be taken to benefit the church’s barrier-free access project. An active recitalist and teacher, Ingram’s operatic repertoire includes leading roles in “Carmen,” “Aida,” “Lucia di Lammermoor, “Madama Butterfly,” “The Flying Dutchman,” and “Porgy and Bess.” Ingram is a member of the Naomi Music Ensemble and has toured as soloist with the Spiritual Singers of Harlem. He recently performed in Korea, Sweden, Spain, Austria, and Jamaica. A graduate of Fisk University, Ingram later received a master’s degree in music from Yale University. Popjes, music minister and associate pastor at First United Methodist Church in Newton, studied at Westminster Choir College in Princeton. She did graduate work at seminaries in Ohio and Washington, D.C., and holds certification in church music, diaconal ministry and clinical pastoral education. Raufova, the Ridgewood church’s musician since January, trained in her native Russia at Gnesina State College of Music and Moscow State Pedagogical Institute, won first prize in the Composers of the 20th Century national competition, taught at Moscow’s Music Academy for Gifted Children, and has previously served churches in Moscow, New York City, and New Jersey. A 30 rank Tellers Kent pipe organ was donated to the church by William and Esther Tanis of Ridgewood in 1964. This house organ was originally built for Saint Aloysius Roman Catholic Church in Jersey City in the 1920s. It presently boasts 1,300 pipes. For further information, contact Joyce Monsma, Ridgewood Christian Reformed Church, at (201) 445-1832 or via e-mail at ridgewoodnjcrc@verizon.net. The road to independence (continued from page 17) Adams to stop harping, and “The Egg,” in which Franklin, Adams, and Jefferson compare America to an egg about to hatch. Adams and Abigail share a couple of romantic ballads, “Till Then” and “Yours, Yours, Yours.” And there’s even a fullout, joyful number, “He Plays the Violin,” by Martha Jefferson (Lauren Kennedy), Franklin, and Adams, waltzing gleefully about the stage as they await Jefferson’s draft of the Declaration. From time to time, a courier (Griffin Matthews) delivers a dispatch from General Washington, whose ragtag forces are mightily outnumbered by the British and whose reports are increasingly pessimistic. When asked whether he has seen any action, Griffin’s courier answers in the song, “Momma, Look Sharp,” which chronicles the death www.TiffanyDiner.com of his two best friends on a village greenturned-battlefield and the mothers who come to look for their sons’ bodies after the smoke has cleared. This mesmerizing young performer’s heartrending delivery is a highlight of the play. “1776” is a great choice for the Paper Mill. If you are thinking this is a dull history lesson, you could not be more wrong. This is a traditional musical that turns history into a vibrant, dramatic tale of extraordinary men who take a courageous step to form a new nation, and they do it in song. “1776,” which will run through May 17, will be presented Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m., Thursdays at 2 and 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 to $92 and may be purchased by calling (973) 376-4343 or online at www.papermill.org.
