Under the patronage of French Ambassador Philippe Etienne, the Washington Opera Society celebrated the holidays with song at the Embassy of France on Dec. 13. Following a cocktail reception, guests participated in a Christmas singalong as they joined artists under the baton of General and Artistic Director Julien Benichou. WOS extended a special thank you to philanthropist and chairwoman Annie Totah, the generous main sponsor of the production. Guests bid on auction items during intermission and enjoyed post-concert desserts. The Washington Opera Society presents intellectual and specialty operatic programs to Washington’s audiences and endeavors to support music in D.C. public schools.
