Mark Your Calendar: A Night in Italy 

The Savannah Children’s Chorus’ senior choir will attend the 2012 Days of Verona international choir competition in Verona, Italy next spring. According to artistic director Roger Moss, the local group will be one of just three American choirs traveling to Italy – and the only American children’s choir.

A Nov. 14 concert at the Charles H. Morris Center will raise funds for the choir’s travel expenses. And it’s a doozy – four fully–fledged opera stars in performance.

They are: Sara Stewart, soprano and Sandra Piques Eddy, mezzo–soprano, both of the Metropolitan Opera; Jason Baldwin, tenor, from the Utah Opera Company; and Gregory Gerbrandt, baritone, of New York’s American Opera Company.

The event, A Night in Italy, was the brainchild of the SCC’s former artist–in–residence, Metropolitan Opera bass/baritone Keith Miller. The vocalists will perform in duets, in groups and as soloists, and the finale will feature them along with the senior choir.

A catered reception follows the 6:30 p.m. concert.

Tickets are $125 at savannahchoir.org.

Rockin’ Tybee

October 8, Tybee Island. Somehow totally separate from the 2011 Pirate Fest, which is also going on that day, Molly Hatchet will perform (along with Big Engine and Kymistry) at the pier and pavilion. The event starts at 5:30 p.m.
According to our crack calculators here at Connect, this will put these bands’ shows up against the Eric Culberson Band, the Train Wrecks and the Journey tribute band Departure, which are scheduled at the same time on the Pirate Fest mainstage – in the beach parking lot just a buckled swash away from the pier and pavilion.

The seventh annual Pirate Fest takes place Oct. 7–9.

Other stuff
