Opera Naples Fundraiser March 2012
Opera Naples is proud to present Patricia Racette, renowned throughout the world for her portrayals of opera's greatest heroines, live in concert as part of ON major fundraising event of the season.
This special benefit concert, a combination of Patricia's favorite opera arias and cabaret standards with piano accompaniment, will be held in the beautiful sanctuary of Moorings Presbyterian Church on Friday March 16, 2012.
This is a unique opportunity for you to enjoy the artistry and magnificent voice of a singer the New York Times has called "gifted, compelling and intuitive."
