Washington Opera Society Launches Fall Season

Rafael Prieto, Fairouz Foty, Israel Lozano, Brandie Sutton and Kevin Short.

“Il Trovatore & Other Masterpieces” was the program at the University Club on Sept. 28. Following a cocktail buffet, Lisa Chavez, Fairouz Foty, Israel Lozano, Kevin Short and Brandie Sutton sang, accompanied by the Washington Opera Society Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Julien Benichou, with amusing narration by Dr. Scott Beard. WOS Executive Director Michael Reilly made welcoming remarks as he introduced a program of operatic highlights ranging from Verdi and Puccini to Jerome Kern’s “Ol’ Man River.” Reilly encouraged guests to support a scholarship program for voice students and no-cost performances for young and at-risk students.
