August 28, 2008: Voices is finalizing details for the upcoming Fall Benefit Concert on September 6 at The Wadsworth in Newnan. The concert brings together extraordinary talent from The Southern Arc: the female solo ensemble Zaphyra (who will also be performing at the upcoming Powers' Crossroads Festival in Newnan this weekend;) the Southern Nights Chorale, a men’s precision a capella ensemble; and young talented violinist, Matthew Roberts, are included in the program.
This season’s first more intimate production unites the talent in solo and ensemble combinations, offering, as it has now become the trademark of this performing arts organization, and eclectic amalgamation of music. The program blends soundtrack and musicals selections from “Cold Mountain,” “Evita,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Oliver,” & “Porgy and Bess;” classical evergreens such as Puccini’s “O mio babbino caro” and Delibes’ “Flower Duet” from the opera Lakme; as well as a tribute of pieces made popular by Celtic Woman, Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli.
Hair design is being developed by Carlos Salon in Peachtree City. “Part of our intension is to engage businesses from The Southern Arc in a creative capacity,” explained Ms. Ugarte, Voices Artistic Director. “So we approached Carlos Salon to join us in this adventure and they enthusiastically agreed.” Piano Crafters in Newnan will be contributing the use of a grand piano, “which will add a magic touch to the performance.” Zaphyra’s wardrobe, obtained at David’s Bridal, has received the Voices touch, another staple of these performances. The Post Concert “Meet & Greet” Reception is being sponsored by Ten East Washington. This prime Newnan restaurant will helping crown the night with some delectable platters.
