TACO (Tenth Anniversary Celebration of Operetta)

On November 19th 2016, the opera company celebrated their

tenth anniversary with an unusual performance. It was partly

concert, and partly staged, and filled with costume and scene

changes, and selections from all of the operas we have

performed. The cast was made up of current Party members

and a couple new faces, although the hope had been for

company alumni to return for this one performance. George

Harnish was the emcee for the event, introducing operas,

songs, characters, and singers, as well as providing history

of the company. Sue Lewis gave the toast at intermission. As

always, we performed at the Mendelssohn PAC.
