Grazie di cuore

(Sincerest thanks)

I am sincerely grateful to you for joining us for our second season of Finger Lakes Opera at SUNY Geneseo.

In just one short month since we brought you Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love and Rodgers & Hammerstein’s A Grand Night for Singing, I am still ‘under the spell’ of ‘the elixir’ and trusting that you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you.

Delivering on our promise to bring you the highest quality, professional opera was our motivation, and I would like to share a quote from David Raymond’s review in CITY Newspaper: “The organization is only in its second year, but with this fresh production of an old favorite (The Elixir of Love,) it sets some high standards. This was as pleasurable an opera production as I have seen in a long time.”

We plan to continue the momentum next year, showcasing the best professional singers and musicians available in the United States and beyond. Watch for details this fall about our plans for next summer. As a patron, you will be the first to be informed.

I would be most grateful if you would spread the word about Finger Lakes Opera and also recommend that you follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@fingerlksopera) where we will periodically post information about the company.

Also, please consider joining others in generously supporting the company to ensure a bright future. You can make a tax-deductible gift online here.
