Scranton Cultural Center to host ‘Enchanted Evening’ of Broadway and opera music
From a press release:
The Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple will host a celebration of music and the arts when it presents “Some Enchanted Evening,” a concert featuring audience favorites from Broadway to the Met, on Saturday, Nov. 15.
The concert will be preceded by the “Life. Celebrated.” reception. This event, hosted by the past presidents of the Board of Directors of the Scranton Cultural Center, will honor members of the community that support the SCC and promote the arts.
“The focus of the night is on the new vision of the Scranton Cultural Center,” says Executive Director Michael Melcher.
“We want to celebrate all of the exciting things that will be happening here over the coming months and thank all the individuals that have supported us and continue to do so. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate other than a spectacular concert event like this.”
The concert will span the musical spectrum, featuring songs from beloved Broadway musicals, such as “Guys and Dolls,” “South Pacific,” and “Phantom of the Opera,” to operatic classics like “Pirates of Penzance,” “Carmen,” “Rigoletto,” and many more.
Chris DiMattio will serve as guest host of the concert, which will feature four up-and-coming musical stars as well as NYC’s Rockland Camerata, the Delaware Valley Choral Society, and the Festival Symphony. Matt Rupcich will serve as conductor.
The reception will start in the Center’s Grand Ballroom with music, cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, community award presentations, a live auction, and an exciting reveal of the SCC’s new logo.
The event is sponsored by Gress Refrigerated Services and Logistics, Accentuate Caterers, UNICO Scranton, and PPL Electric.
The “Life. Celebrated.” reception will begin at 6 p.m., with the “Some Enchanted Evening” concert at 8 p.m. All proceeds generated will benefit the Matthew Flynn Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Scranton Cultural Center’s Creative and Performing Arts Academy.
