The event is hosted by the Aurora Project, a non-profit organization that is restoring six late 19th century buildings in Aurora to house the state’s only full-time artists’ residency and education center.
Nemzer, a Moscow native, was a winner of the 2012 Metropolitan Opera National Council Grand Finals and will appear in the Met’s new production of Handel’s Giulio Cesare this season.
Soprano Courtney Fint Zimmerman has studied classical voice and performed with the Charleston Light Opera Guild. She resides in Akron, Ohio, and is a member of the Akron Symphony Orchestra Chorus and Blossom Festival Chorus.
Pianists Preston Showman and Michael Broderick will accompany Nemzer and Zimmerman in their individual performances. The concert will begin at 4 p.m., with a light buffet following at the nearby Lantz Ridge Community Center. Cost of admission, including concert and buffet, is $45 and will benefit the Aurora Project.
The Aurora Project, located in a rural setting along US Route 50 in Preston County, will establish programs to accommodate artists, writers and scholars for short residencies and currently sponsors retreats and hosts educational and cultural programs for residents of the region.
