rotating artists 2016 The Ontario County Arts Council's
17th annual Spaghetti Opera
Friday, Ocober. 14, 2016

Featuring operatic selections by Mozart, Rossini, Pucccini; art songs by Barber, Schiavone and Vaughn Williams; and a few Broadway standards.

This arts council tradition features many local singers, including mezzo sopranos Angie Bemus and Amy Ogden and baritone Mark Darling. Performers also include two returning sopranos from last year: Nadine Earl Carey, who teaches voice at the City College of New York, and Sandra Boysen Sluberski, who has taught voice at Hochstein School of Music & Dance, Monroe Community College and Nazareth College. South Bristol resident and tenor Earl Petit will join the event this year.

"Spaghetti Opera has become a reunion of sorts for those who love to sing great songs and those who enjoy listening over dinner with friends," said Judi Cermak, arts council president.

Ogden will perform "Children Will Listen" from "Into the Woods" and "When I Have Sung My Songs to You." Carey's selections include "Part of Your World" from "The Little Mermaid" and Dvorak's "Song to the Moon." Darling will sing "O Isis und Osiris" from "The Magic Flute" and "Duetto buffo di due gatti" by Rossini with Ogden. Other selections from the 20 songs on the program include Petit singing "Bring Him Home" from "Les Miserables" and Sluberski's performance of "Don't Put Your Daughter on the Stage, Mrs. Worthington" by Noel Coward.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. at the Inn on the Lake, 770 S. Main St. in Canandaigua. The deadline to buy tickets is Oct. 10. Tickets, at $40 per person, are available at Finger Lakes Gallery & Frame, 175 S. Main St., or at (585) 394-5986.

Spaghetti Opera is one of the arts council's fundraisers that support a scholarship for a graduating Ontario County senior who plans to pursue a music, theater or visual art major in college. This past June's $2,000 scholarship recipient was Andrew Bellomo from Victor High School.

The Ontario County Arts Council is open to artists and anyone who appreciates art. Members receive regular updates on exhibits, concerts and other events sponsored by the council, including the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival, which brings visiting artists to Canandaigua every June.

The 2017 scholarship will be given to a student who plans to pursue instrumental or vocal music. To join the arts council or get information about the scholarship, call (585) 234-6032.
