Wagner and Verdi

At the Montauk Library

   Valerie Coates, a mezzo-soprano, and Jason Andrews, a pianist, will perform Wagner’s “Wesendonk Lieder” and Verdi’s “Composizioni da Camera” on Sunday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Montauk Library. The free concert is part of a series of events sponsored by the library in honor of the 200th anniversary of the birth of both composers.
    Ms. Coates has appeared as alto soloist at Carnegie Hall with the London Sinfonietta, in New Jersey with the Choral Art Society, Masterwork Chorus, and Monmouth Civic Chorus, and on Long Island with the Long Island Choral Society. Mr. Andrews is frequently heard in solo piano, vocal, and chamber music recitals in many of New York City’s major venues, including Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Steinway Hall, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
