‘Romance’ in valley air
“The Voices of Romance” will resound June 18 at Oak Savanna Vineyard in Santa Ynez Valley in a dinner concert benefitting People Helping People.
Guests have been invited to arrive at the benefit starting at 7 p.m.
The Art Deco style of Russian-born French designer Romain de Tirtoff, who called himself Erté, is the theme for invitations and table settings, according to Lee Rosenberg, a Valley resident and spokesman for the event.
“There will be a champagne bar, and each guest couple will receive a long-stem rose as they are escorted to their table,” he said.
Sponsors for the fundraiser are the Vineyard Valley Theatre Company and Opera Santa Barbara.
Guest artists who will sing are: Micaela Oeste, soprano; Jordan Bluth, tenor; Jamie Chamberlin, soprano; Danielle Marcelle Bond, mezzo soprano, and David Potter, piano accompanist.
Among popular romantic music selections to be performed are “Sous le Dôme Épais” from “Lakmé” by Léo Delibes; “And This Is My Beloved” from “Kismet” by Robert Wright and George Forrest; “Je Veux Vivre Dans Ce Rêve” from “Romeo and Juliet” by Charles Gounod; “Una Furtiva Lagrima” from “L’Elisir D’Amore” by Gaetano Donizetti and “Time to Say Goodbye” by Franscesco Sartori.
Those wishing to purchase tickets or to obtain more information can call Lee Rosenberg at (805) 686-9955 or (310) 463-1770.
