Classical Movements will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special gala on Oct. 30, 2022.
The event, which will take place at the Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, VA, will feature performances by Baritone Javier Arrey, the Morgan State University Singers, the Prague Summer Nights String Quartet, the Insingizi of Zimbabwe, and the Brass Fanfare.
The gala’s co-chairs will be Linda Brunce, Carolyn Fuller, and Patti White, with Anne Midgette as the Master of Ceremonies.
Arrey is a Chilean baritone who performed with the Maryland Lyric Opera throughout the 2022 season and is coming off a production of “La Traviata” at the Opera Nacional de Chile. In April 2023, he will appear at the Metropolitan Opera to cover the role of Belcore in “L’Elisir d’Amore” before heading over to the Santa Fe Opera to cover “El Último Sueño de Frida y Diego.”
Per its official website, “Classical Movements is the premier concert tour company for the world’s great orchestras and choirs, creating meaningful cultural experiences through orchestra tours and choir tours with their music in 145 countries.”
