To the Editor:
On behalf of the Oswego Opera Theater Board of Directors, I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who helped make our recent production such a resounding success. Our presentation of “A Grand Night for Singing in Oswego” was a memorable evening by all accounts.
Our artists deserve special thanks for treating us to such a wonderful performance. Craig Schulman, Eleanor Paunovic and Dan Riddle showed the audience exactly how they have become international stars with their presentation of operatic arias, duets, and show-stopping Broadway favorites.
Of course, the evening wouldn’t have been possible without our sponsors. In particular, we thank our major sponsors Breakwall Asset Management, Lincoln Investment Planning, Step One Creative, Wayne Drugs, Amdursky Pelky Fennell and Wallen Law, Best Western Plus Captain’s Quarters, Terry and Martha Hammill, Helen Luongo, and Sithe Independence Power Partners.
Our media sponsors – Oswego County Today.com and Oswego County Weeklies – continue to be important pillars of support for Oswego Opera Theater in particular, and arts in our community in general.
In addition, the more than 80 individuals who attended our sponsors’ dinner and reception with the artists were integral parts of this entire effort. Without the gracious support and enthusiastic attendance of all of our supporters and sponsors, we would not be able to bring world-class entertainment to our community. Thank you.
Finally, thank you to our audience. Your attendance and participation at this amazing event proved once again that there is strong public demand for – and appreciation of – this calibre of quality entertainment in our community. Moreover, your continued attendance and support ensures that we can continue to provide it.
Dr. Marilynn Smiley, President
