Alta Boover: Young singer with the Shreveport Symphony's Judas Maccabaeus, Saturday, April 9

Alta Boover is a mezzo-soprano from the Eastman School of Music via a magna cum laude degree from Skidmore. This year she is part of Shreveport Opera's Young Artist program. Saturday night she will sing with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra.

The concert, Handel's Judas Maccabaeus, features 4 singers and a large orchestra. But few of the artists involved will offer you the charm you will find on Ms. Boover's blog, altaboover.com. Imagine a Massachusetts girl having a ball with Mardi Gras, gators and a myriad of Bayou State attractions.

Also featured are singers Gale Odom, coloratura soprano; Randal Rushing, tenor, and Timothy Jones, bass-baritone. Chorus members include the Centenary Camerata, Dr. Julia Brasher Thorn, conductor; NSU Chamber Choir, Dr. Burt Allen, conductor, and the Red River Children's Choir, Betty Adkins, director.
