Concert: A Musical Journey to Italy
The following Friday, October 21, over 100 came to St. George’s for the William P. Carter Memorial Italian Composers Concert. This year, once again, The Chamber Chorale of Fredericksburg performed; the program was a mix of international choral works, many of which were the works of Italian composers. The Chorale’s new conductor, Joe Eveler, and new accompanist, Brittany James, expressed how happy the Chorale were to be asked to perform, and for the opportunity to sing at St. George’s, whose acoustics contribute to an excellent program.
Kudos to board member Bob Bevilaqua, who has expertly managed the partnership between our sister city and the Chorale. It literally takes months to put this event together. Funds from our fundraisers and support of the membership make this annual concert possible. Because of those funds, we are able to offer this concert free, as an Italian gift to the City.
