Review for Artisti Affamati Quartet:
As soloists, these four singers have been seen featured with the likes of The Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, the Chattanooga Bach Choir, Chorale Arts of Chattanooga, a plethora of area churches, almost every local community theater, Hops N Opera, Divas and Drinks, HATCH/spark Arts Festival, and New Dischord Music Festival just to name a few places. They all have families, day jobs, and thousands of other things to do, but all share the passion for singing and so have carved out some time together to bring that passion to their communities Their variety style opera/broadway show called Divas and Gents has been well received in both Spring City, Tn. and Columbia, S.C. and is due to be repeated on Signal Mountain in March.
This quartet forms the core of the full company of Artisti Affamati which presented their first full operatic production in April. Looking to the future, the full company is both planning a new opera for the fall of 2013 and looking to incorporate with the aim of being a legitimate regional opera company. The quartet will continue to operate independently and is available for private and social events as well as full recitals/shows.
Southside Casual Classics concerts are held at The Camp House at 7:30 p.m. The concerts are free but goodwill donations are appreciated.
