With the launch of this website, the MCA has created a platform for archiving and publishing images and stories from our 50-year history. Though many pages currently lack descriptions or illustrations, we’re committed to a program of ongoing research that will fill in the blanks over time. If you have information about past MCA Stage events, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Elsa Charlston - Elsa Charlston has an impressive reputation for her Interpretations of avant-garde compositions and is equally at ease with the standard literature. In addition to the world premiere of Weisgall's Translation, Psalms of Love by John F. Becker, and Three American Songs by Thomas Pasatiere, works by Stephen Foster and Charles Ives were heard. Accompanying Ms. Charlston were pianist Andrea Swan and flutist Jan Herlinger.
