Topic: Piedmont Opera – A Little Night Music Speaker: Jamie Albritten
Perhaps you're already an opera buff, or maybe you're just curious about our own Piedmont Opera. Please join us at our monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 23, and listen to Jamie Albritten tell us about the opera company and the upcoming March presentation of A Little Night Music. Piedmont Opera, the second largest opera company in North Carolina, produces the highest quality productions by using international, national, regional and local professional singers and technicians. It currently attracts patrons from sixteen states and communities throughout the Piedmont, Upstate and Virginia.
Jamie Albritten, the General Director and Artistic Director of Piedmont Opera, is a gifted teacher, conductor, and singer. He won several awards for teaching excellence during his prior tenure at University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA), where he was the Artistic Director of the A. J. Fletcher Opera Institute. Visiting artists often comment on his high artistic standards. This reputation allows the company to attract artists with nationally and internationally recognized careers. He has conducted all of the Piedmont Opera's productions since 2004.
Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music, set in turn of the century Sweden, will be performed at the Stevens Center on March 18, 20 and 22. Hopefully many of you will plan to attend, especially after hearing the engaging and charming Jamie Albritten tell us all about it.
