June 16th - (7:00 - 8:30 pm)
Giovanni Music, School of Music and Fine Art Gallery

This concert opens and closes with two transcriptions for two pianos: the first on Giuseppe Verdi's Aida (Hymn-March and Dance), the second on Richard Wagner's The Valkyrie (The Ride of Valkyries). In-between, singers Natasha Da Fonseca, Krista Lessard and Ron Long will perform. This concert appears to be the most theatrical of the Appuntamenti programs. A joint tribute for the anniversaries of Verdi and Wagner at the opposite ends of the program - almost like in their lives and music! In the middle, a wide vocal repertoire of songs by V. Bellini, G. Puccini, G. Rossini with the famous "Una voce poco fa" from Il Barbiere di Siviglia, G. Donizetti, G. Verdi with the well-known "La donna mobile" from Rigoletto, and, finally, the wonderful Drinking-song "Libiamo ne' lieti calici" from La Traviata performed by the duet Natasha Da Fonseca and Ron Long.
