For many couples whose marriages end in divorce, there is some solace found in monetary compensation or the gain of tangible belongings.  But what happens when two people that once shared the gift of music no longer experience it together because of hurt feelings, anger or even resentment.  Divorced couple, both opera singers Marlissa Hudson and Colin Eaton join the show to speak about their upcoming concert. This will be the first concert that they have sung together since the divorce.


About the concert on March 17, 4:00 p.m. at All Soul's Unitarian Church, D. C.

Marlissa Hudson and tenor Sargeant First Class Colin Eaton will perform a joint recital chronicling their journey of love, hurt, and reconciliation. Divorced since 2008, this will be their first time performing together since their marriage ended. When asked why she programmed this type of concert, Marlissa said “I see this recital as a real opportunity to share beautiful music that tells a story to which almost everyone can relate. Who hasn’t been touched by divorce in some way? Music is an amazing healer, and by sharing our story we hope to give others an opportunity to work through their own experiences while enjoying songs and arias written by great composers.” Marvin Mills, former All Souls music director, will be their collaborative pianist and premiere an arrangement on the program.
