An All Star Tribute to Gilbert and Sullivan

 

Come with cat like tread and bring your sisters and cousins and aunts (and everyone else) to a fabulous concert featuring selections from all 13 Gilbert and Sullivan operettas! This concert is generously sponsored by NEGASS (The New England Gilbert and Sullivan Society) as a benefit for The Sudbury Savoyards. As we have become our own incorporated non-profit in the past year we have some financial burdens that did not exist in previous years. Please support the Savoyards and enjoy the talents of an all-star group of singers coming together for this one night only! Listen to your favorite G&S songs performed by Connie Benn, Ethan Butler, Elaine Crane, Kaori Emery, Tom Frates, Angela Jajko, Katherine Meifert, Ben Morse, Tom Ostrowski, Lonnie Powell, and Carolyn Schwartz. It should be a fun and jubilant event!
