Suffolk County’s intimate classical music venue, Le Petit Salon de Musique, encourages music lovers all over Long Island to join us on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., for Musical Expressions of Love, a selection of the world’s most beloved songs performed by Ron and Julie Anne Meixsell, with pianist Doris Anne McMullen. This entertaining collaboration of a talented husband and wife vocalist duo with an accomplished pianist has become a favorite of Long Island audiences and this year's appearance promises to be the best ever. They’ll offer Operatic selections from The Magic Flute, German lieder and art songs, as well as a second act of classic love songs from the golden age Broadway.
Baritone Ron Meixsell has sung for three presidents and has performed with orchestras across America, including leading roles with the New York Grand Opera, Opera on the Sound, The Long Island Opera, and the Manhattan Opera Ensemble. Newsday said of him that “Baritone Ron Meixsell filled the hall with his rich, warm voice.” Julie Anne Meixsell is a fabulous soprano whose voice has been featured as part of the Portraits in Motion television series. She has toured as part of an ensemble with Neil Diamond and recorded with Columbia Records. She was the featured soloist with the Long Island String Quartet’s performance of Il Tramonto by Respighi. Doris Anne McMullen, whose piano accompanies the Meixsell’s vocals so perfectly, is a remarkable piano performer whose live and taped music has been broadcast on WQXR, WNYC and the BBC. She has performed with the Long Island Philharmonic and as a concerto soloist with the Suffolk Symphony, Sound Symphony, West Islip Symphony Orchestra, Bay Area Friends of the Fine Arts (BAFFA) and the University Orchestra at Stony Brook University.
Ron and Julie Anne have performed to rave reviews for more than twenty years, and each time these enthusiastic and accomplished performers grace Le Petit Salon’s stage, audience members leave with favorite melodies ringing in their heads and joy in their hearts.
