Opera House program scheduled 2011.05.11

Written by David Green.

The final program of the 2010-11 Fayette Artist Series gets underway at 3 p.m. Sunday in Fayette’s historic Opera House.

The program, titled “Stone Soup Sunday, An Inspirational Concert,” features contemporary and traditional musical numbers from a variety of local and area performers.

Opera House Director, Tom Spiess noted that this wrap-up concert serves a dual purpose. First, it replaces the cancelled Nov. 6 “Hellenistic Dancers” program and, second, it allows the Fayette Arts Council the opportunity to rekindle its commitment to sponsoring and promoting “music for the spirit.”

“For several years we presented a concert that focused on gospel and church music” Spiess said. “This concert is a return to that tradition.”

The concert will feature a “Do-it-Yourself Hand-Bell Choir” and music presented on the Opera House’s Mason & Hamlin Organ, as well as a broad selection of songs from talented performers from throughout the area.

Continuing a long standing tradition, a reception will follow the concert for patrons to meet with the visiting performers.

Tickets are available at the door or reservations can be made by calling 419/237-3111 and leaving a request for tickets.
