Fall Opera Gala Sunday at Bucknell
LEWISBURG — The fall concert season is upon us, and the Susquehanna Valley Chorale is kicking it off on a high note. Following a successful concert last year, the SVC is excited to host its second annual Fall Opera Gala.
This year’s event will be headlined by world class opera soloist AnnMarie Sandy. She has a master’s degree in vocal performance and is a member of the New York City Opera. The Susquehanna Valley Chorale will also perform 12 famous opera choruses, along with a full orchestra and the Susquehanna Valley Youth Chorale.
SVC Music Director and Conductor William Payn said, “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… We are very excited to have a performer of AnnMarie’s caliber as part of this event.”
The SVC Fall Opera Gala will be Sunday at 3:00p.m. at the Weis Center for Performing Arts at Bucknell University. A Gala Reception will follow the concert. Tickets are available at the Bucknell Campus Box Office, or online at http://www.bucknell.edu/Boxoffice.xml. (Codi Jade)
