Summer Lightside a huge success!

This year's "On the Lightside" at Callenwolde featured the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, sung by some of our most popular singers. Patrons brought their own picnic suppers -- and what suppers they brought! From roast salmon to roast beef, from cakes to coleslaw, it was a feast at every table!
Flowers and decorative tableware added to the festivites and the roomed looked as good as it smelled.
And of course we had our yearly silent auction. All of our auction items found a buyer, and one lucky winner is now planning for a weeks vacation at a villa in Italy (where even the BAD food is GOOD!)
The cast included Lawson Anderson, Amber Brooke, Valerie Beck, Victoria Hawkins, Courtney Loner, Heather Witt, Gerald Yarbray, and Gus Godbee (who's rousing version of "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning" had the whole audience singing along!) Michael Fauss provided musical direction and accompanied the evening, which was directed by Michael Nutter.
We want to thank all of our sponsors, patrons and contributors for their support of Capitol City Opera Company. With your help we are truly fulfilling our mission of bringing Opera to Everyone!
