Bravissimo Society

Leilane Mehler founded the Bravissimo Society to assist young singers in our region through an awards competition, which will conclude in May of 2011. On Sept. 12, she and her husband Barry hosted supporters for a recital of Zarzuela performed by soprano Serena Canino, baritone Jose Sacin, as well as tenor Aurelio Dominguez and pianist Emily Senturia, who came from Norfolk where they are in rehearsals for Rigoletto. Bravissimo founding member Felipe Rodriguez likened Zarzuela, which originated in Spain, to US musicals in the blending of music and drama.
