NIAF invites you to join us on Saturday, August 7, 2010 in Stonington, Conn., for a concert celebrating music, art and the legacy of Italian singing legend Sergio Franchi. Hosted by The Sergio Franchi Music Foundation at Franchi's Stonington estate, this event is not to be missed for music lovers of all ages.
During his 28-year-long singing career, Franchi was a dedicated supporter of the arts and charitable organizations that valued his Italian heritage. Since its inception 17 years ago, the Sergio Franchi Music Foundation has awarded 470 scholarships to voice students, helping others pursue the career so loved by the late romantic tenor. His memory lives on through the foundation's work and this annual concert.
Tickets, which can be purchased at the door on the day of the concert, are $35 and $25 for NIAF members. To learn more www.sergiofranchi.com or call 860-535-9429.
