“Quite simply, this will be an afternoon to revel in the beauty and power of the voice,” officials said.
“In a program that spans the operatic and musical theater repertoire, four world-class singers will perform songs, arias and ensembles from your favorite operas and Tony Award-winning musicals from ‘The Barber of Seville’ to ‘West Side Story’ and everything in between.
“(There will be) seduction, jealousy, humor and the triumph of love.”
“Bringing this music to life are Rachel Holzhausen (soprano), Yvette Smith (mezzo-soprano), John Concepcion (tenor) and Michael Cavalieri (baritone).
“If you’re looking to lose the midwinter blues, spend an afternoon up close with some glorious voices.”
