Video: Opera for a cause! Singing for SWYFS in Fauntleroy

Lyric soprano Vicky Oxley and mezzo-soprano Linda Rough are the Opera Belles, and their 10-song “Parade of Operatic Hits” was the perfect note to end a sunny Sunday in Fauntleroy. With accompanist Hartwig Eichberg, they sang the music of nine composers in a house-recital benefit for Southwest Youth and Family Services, whose director Steve Daschle was their opening act, explaining Delridge-based SWYFS’s community work to help thousands of people every year, in multiple ways:

Susan Lantz-Dey from the SWYFS Board hosted the recital and a wine/cheese reception preceding it.

P.S. The song in our clip is an original Opera Belles arrangement of “Voi Che Sapete” from Mozart‘s “Marriage of Figaro.”

    Opera may not be my cup of tea but Southwest Youth and Family Services is. If you don’t know who they are, check them out, it is worth your time. Just click on their link in the story.

    And as for Susan, she is one heck of a booster for Southwest. She gives of her home so readily.

Sorry, comment time is over.
