As the ISO prepares to celebrate the joys of the holiday season on December 12, the opera committee is also diligently working to finalize plans for Gianni Schicchi on January 20.
Following successful auditions in New York and Lakeland, the committee identified some exciting artists to join the cast in 2018 and 2019 including recent FSC graduate Alyna Francine as Lauretta and Grammy Award-nominated Daniel Bates as Rinuccio.
And now you’re wondering about the “feet first” mention in the headline, right? The opera committee has also created a fundraiser we can all support – OPERA SOCKS!
Using the 2018 poster design for Gianni Schicchi, the folks at bakdrop.com will custom print socks just for the opera. You can learn more and purchase your socks here: http://bakdrop.com/products/gianni
Bakdrop will donate up to 50% of sock sales to the ISO – and you’ll be able to collect socks for each opera for years to come!
Thank you for supporting the ISO and all the programs that bring live music to our community!
I’ll see you at the Symphony,
Brad Lunz, ISO President
