Father Scott Koszalinski traveled from Knoxville to lead us in Holy Communion this past Sunday. It was wonderful to see Father Scott again! He has agreed to come to St. Peter's the first Sunday of every month for Holy Communion - Thank You So Much Father Scott!
Rose Marie and Rosalind had an exciting and culturally interesting time last week! Sue asked us to host a visiting member of the Opera Ithaca company. Scott, Sue's husband and Executive Director of the Symphony of the Mountains, had arranged for Opera Ithaca to travel from NY to Kingsport. While in Kingsport, Opera Ithaca and Symphony of the Mountains staged two performances of Puccini's La Boheme, one in Emory, VA and one in Kingsport. All the members of Opera Ithaca were hosted in private residences during their stay in Kingsport for rehearsals and performances. Sue and Scott hosted two of the lead singers, a couple originally from Korea!
Rose Marie and Rosalind hosted Ivy Stevens, the Opera Ithaca Stage Manager for three nights each. She is a delightful young woman. We were very interested to hear about her role and responsibilities as stage manager. Also, Rosalind's dogs were very taken with her!
The Symphony of the Mountains and Opera Ithaca's performances were amazing! Especially considering they only had a week to pull everything together!
