05/04/2015 - It was all about purity and beauty of the Russian music as Lola once again collaborated with the great Gerard Schwarz and the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra at the Clay Center. The two concerts and one matinee performance were greeted with an "an extended ovation" from the audience that turned up in large numbers to see Lola perform for the second season in a row. The previous collaboration with maestro Schwarz and his Emmy-winning All-Star Orchestra was the recording of Gershwin's famed "Rhapsody in Blue", which will be released later this year.
