Picture of the Day – September 13, 2012

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.

What makes for a memorable performance at the festival? How about a performance by Suzanne Corey-Sahlin and Gerald Steichen, principal violist and musical director of the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra, respectively. Now approaching its 50th anniversary, the RSO is a fully professional orchestra with a rich history. Under the direction of Gerald Steichen, the RSO consistently presents top quality performances to rave reviews. Their programming includes well known classics, exciting contemporary music and lighter fare for orchestra newcomers.  It was a pleasure to feature their performance of Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata.
