Opera in Williamsburg's "A Free Evening of Beautiful Singing" fills Williamsburg Art Gallery

Nearly 200 attended "A Free Evening of Beautiful Singing" at the Williamsburg Art Gallery to celebrate the donation of a Yamaha Digital Piano to Opera in Williamsburg (OiW) by the E. K. Sloane Fund of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Two superb opera singers, baritone Suchan Kim and soprano Kinneret Ely, who braved snow-snarled transportation from New York for the event, provided a two segment performance for the crowd. Alyssa Melchers from William and Mary filled in on piano since the original pianist scheduled could not make it because of weather. The event also announced the upcoming performance at the Kimball by Opera in Williamsburg of Rossini's La Cenerentola (Cinderella) on April 8th and 10th, with an introductory fundraising dinner at Colonial Heritage April 3rd.
