Hello again! Hopefully everyone is safe and recovering from Sandy. We have another picture post from the 2011 Holiday Fundraiser concert that may help to get your spirits up. In this picture, Festival Director Daniel Morel is chatting with some of the fantastic ladies who were involved with the concert. From left to right they are: Mattie Banzhaf, Sheri Brown, Patrice Fitzgerald, and Grace White. The fundraiser gala included food, drinks, and performances.
This winter we will be running our fundraiser on the Fractured-Atlas website. This will allow us to create a home page about the organization and the upcoming festival. There will also be descriptions of the various donation levels and the fun prizes we will be giving as thanks for any donations. The fundraiser will be running for a couple of weeks. So be sure to check it out when it launches and then spread the word!
One day behind, but back with the photos! And to start this week, can you name this singer? She has appeared in musicals and operas throughout the region, singing with Berkshire Opera, Connecticut Opera, Warner Theatre, Greater Hartford Opera Ensemble, Simsbury Light Opera Company, and Hartford Opera Theater, and has toured Brazil, Spain, Argentina, and Scotland as soloist and section leader.
Did you peek? Well, if you’re not sure – she’s Patrice Fitzgerald, one of the many amazing performers who will be a part of the coming 2013 Festival. Be sure to catch her and everyone else in concert.
