June 30, 2019, 11:30 AM - 5:00 PM @ Swannanoa
Swannanoa is an Italian Renaissance Revival villa built in 1912 by millionaire and philanthropist James H. Dooley (1841–1922) above Rockfish Gap on the border of northern Nelson County and Augusta County, Virginia and sits high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains at Afton. The palace is open for touring on the weekend, and small group tours may be arranged at other times.
June 30, 2019, 4:00 PM @ Wayne Theatre
This recital will feature Shenandoah Valley nightingales Penelope Shumate and Amy Cochrane of Waynesboro, each having developed established careers as operatic sopranos and voice teachers.
They have so many things in common, teaching, operatic roles, Carnegie Hall performances, and most of all their love of the Valley.
They are excited to return to their homes in this unique collaboration which will include arias from Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah, songs by African-American Women composers, and also duets and arias ranging from composers Handel to Puccini.
Not only are both accomplished in opera but are known for their artistry in oratorio, chamber music, and song repertoire and look forward to sharing these gems with you as well.
