The Jamestown Concert Association presents the second concert in its 2018-19 concert series of Dedicated to Great Music on Friday, November 2nd, when soprano Deborah Selig, baritone David McFerrin, and pianist Jerry Noble perform in Jamestown at 8:00 PM at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 410 N. Main St.  In a program entitled Angel Spirits: Music of World War One, this Boston area trio combine their talents to present a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the First World War and bring a moving American musical collage to the stage.  A striking and versatile artist, Ms. Selig has sung with orchestras and choruses across the United States, including Chautauqua Opera. Her voice has been described as “radiant,” “beautifully rich,” “capable of any emotional nuance,” and “impressively nimble.” Baritone David McFerrin has won critical acclaim in a wide variety of repertoire and was praised by The Miami Herald for his “commanding stage presence and a voice of seductive beauty.”  Clifton J. “Jerry” Noble, Jr.’s musical compositions and arrangements are requested and performed by singers and instrumentalists around the world. This concert is dedicated to the powerful song literature of the WWI era composed by Claude Debussy, Charles Ives, George Cohan, Irving Berlin, and many others.                   www.deborahselig.com
