Winter Harbor Festival Summer Sing

Our friends at the Winter Harbor Music Festival are planning their 2nd annual Summer Sing for August 18 at 7:30pm at Hammond Hall in Winter Harbor.

Louis Denaro who is organizing the event says, “At this year’s Sing we will read two great works of Mozart, the Requiem and the “Ave, verum corpus”, with chorus, orchestra, and soloists. We also will offer participants the option of participating in several choral and orchestral rehearsals (without charge); details are available on our website,”

Daniel Paget – Conductor
Anna Dembska – Soprano soloist
Catherine Aks – Alto soloist
Francis John Vogt – Tenor soloist *
t.b.a. – Bass soloist

*Fran starred in our last production: Ruddigore, and was nominated for Best Male Singer at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in Gettysburg, PA in June!

Sounds like a great time!  If you’d like to participate, see the website or phone 917-291-0143 for information about rehearsals.  If you’d like to attend, scores and refreshments are provided and the suggested donation is $10.  Hope to see you there!
