Taste And Sound Of Italy Benefits Chattanooga Girls Choir April 5

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

The board of the Chattanooga Girls Choir will host Taste and Sound of Italy – Sopranos, Sinatra, and Sauce in the Key-Andrews Hall of St Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Chattanooga on Friday, April 5.  

This sophisticated event (to raise funds for tuition scholarships for young ladies of the Girls Choir) will feature music and food from Italy and Italian America. International soprano Stella Zambalis makes a return to Chattanooga to sing Italian opera favorites both solo and with the Grace Moore Singers, and local crooner Michael Smith will appear with a four-piece combo to sing the best of the Frank Sinatra catalogue.  

Authentic cuisine will be prepared by native Italian Chef Benedetto Scaduto, owner of The Saucy Sicilian. There will also be a silent auction throughout the evening.  

There is seating for 96; call the Chattanooga Girls Choir office at 296-1006 to reserve tickets or visit chattanoogagirlschoir.org to reserve by PayPal.
