SV Chorale to feature renowned opera soloist
LEWISBURG - The Susquehanna Valley Chorale (SVC)'s fall opera gala will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Weis Center for Performing Arts at Bucknell University.
Back by popular demand, this is the second time the SVC will perform opera favorites.
"We were so pleased with the positive response to our last opera gala, that we decided to hold another gala performance to kick off the 2013 concert season," said William Payn, SVC music director and conductor.
Headlining this year's event will be world class opera soloist, AnnMarie Sandy. Sandy is an accomplished soloist with a Bachelor of Music in music performance and a Master of Music in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. The mezzo-soprano was featured in the world premiere of the Central City Opera production of Mollicone's "Gabriel's Daughter" as Eliza Jane, and in the cast of the New York City Opera premiere of Danielpour's "Margaret Garner."
The SVC will perform 12 famous opera choruses by some of opera's most recognizable composers, including Wagner, Verdi, Tchaikovsky, and many more. The SVC will be joined by a full orchestra and the Susquehanna Valley Youth Chorale. Patrons will also be invited to join a gala reception following the concert.
