Christopher Toth is the organist at Plymouth Congregational Church in Coconut Grove, music consultant at St Mark’s Episcopal Church in Oakland Park, chorus director at Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club and choral accompanist for Florida Singing Sons Boy Choir, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida and John Knox Village. Chris studied music at The Cleveland Institute of Music where he earned his Bachelor Degree and Artist Diploma in organ performance. Mezzo-soprano, Amanda Crider, has quickly won national attention for her “gleaming vocalism” (Boston Globe). The Wall Street Journal declared, “the eloquent Ms. Crider carried the evening,” while the New York Times praised her “winsome, vulnerable and deeply expressive” performance in the role of Alma in the world premiere of Keeril Makan's opera, Persona with Beth Morrison Projects. Ms. Crider is also the Founder and Artistic Director of IlluminArts, Miami's Art Song and Vocal Chamber Music Series. Remember to join us next week for another Virtual Happy Hour performance with Mei Mei Luo violin, Chris Glansdorp, cello & Elaine Rinaldi piano.
