Tsunami relief using opera - come on out to Dearborn and see opera

Today, Sunday April 17th at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, MI 15801 Michigan Ave.
(across from the Glass House - if you don't know what that is, you either a: don't live in southeast Michigan or b: do live in Southeast Michigan, but are under a certain age)

They will be hosting a TSUNAMI VICTIMS BENEFIT PERFORMANCE at 4:30 PM today, featuring singers from Friends of the Opera, a local opera organization.

"A light program of arias, duets and quartets (guess that means no Rigoletto) from the worlds most famous and beloved operas"

I have seen their programs before and they tend to go heavy on Verdi.

Pre-concert music by harpist Kathleen Heise. The concert also features members of the Dearborn, Livonia, and Plymouth Symphony orchestras.

It is a free will donation, with all proceeds going to the Rotary Shelter Box Relief program, which provides temporary shelter for victims of the Tsunami.

(313) 943-3095 or

Be there.
