Wishful Singing presenteert: What about Mary

From Callas to Bloody Mary

Maria: her name is as old as the ages. Her name has resounded through the centuries, without sacrificing strength. Maria Callas, Mary Poppins, Bloody Mary… without Mary, history is incomplete.
She was the muse for many composers. Palestrina, Reger, Rodgers & Hammerstein. Our Ladies of Wishful Singing combine them all in the program 'What about Mary?', in which Maria is the common thread of each melody. And let’s be honest: without Maria, no Sound of Music.
