Bravissima! is a group of women who made a yearly commitment to sponsor the Arts in our region. I am proud to be a charter member with many other delightful women who value the performing arts.
On Saturday, we gathered at the lovely home of one of our members. As some of us were chatting in the kitchen, I commented about how beautiful her back yard is. A patch of woods punctuates the rolling landscape before the Buffalo Mountain rises above it all. Just as I was mentioning, she must get to see abundant wildlife; two deer wandered out of the woods. The “performers” were right on cue!
Mr. Mickey seems to have just the right thing to wear for every event. (Note his Phantom of the Opera scarf.) We were delighted by performances by Matthew Potterton, Chair of the ETSU Music Department, Karen Smith, Director of the Opera Department, and various opera faculty and students. These incredibly talented young people gave us chills with their powerful voices.
