Opera Guild to open 2013 season March 23

The Upper Ohio Valley Opera Guild will begin its 2013 season with a performance featuring current cast members of the Pittsburgh Opera together with its music director on March 23 at the Steubenville Country Club.

“For the past six years, they have faithfully accepted my invitation to come to Steubenville, and we have decided to entitle the performance, ‘Our Friends from the Pittsburgh Opera,'” said Anita Jackson, event co-chair and first vice president of the guild.

In addition to well-known arias, the cast members also will perform Broadway music as well.

Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and the performance.

Tickets are $35 per person, and the event is open to the public

Event planners include Dave Trikones, Steubenville Country Club manager; Jackson; Carleen Scurti, guild board member and event co-chair; Mary Jo Rinaldi, guild president and committee member; and Jason Ryan, Steubenville Country Club chef.
