Boheme Opera NJ returned to the Grounds For Sculpture East Gallery for its 6th Annual Holiday appearance on Friday, December 8.
Boheme Opera was proud to partner with Grounds For Sculpture in another collaborative presentation. The concert highlighted themes of the photographic exhibit “Sensitive Chaos” of Elyn Zimmerman being shown in the Dom Arts Mezzanine and West Gallery.
Featured were opera arias/duets and classic songs that enhanced the emotions and senses while viewing the exhibit.
Artists for the evening were Soprano Eudora Brown, Tenor Jeremy Blossey and Baritone Wayne Hu.
The traditional holiday sing-a-long took place after Boheme Opera’s presentation celebrating the synergy of art and music.
Boheme Opera Managing Director and Co-Founder Sandra Milstein-Pucciatti accompanied at the Petrov grand.
Sandra began her life-long musical pursuits as a young piano student of Curtis Institute artist teachers, later enjoying a 10-year association with German master teacher Karl Ulrich Schnabel. A concert performer as solo pianist, soloist with orchestra, chamber musician and professional accompanist, her career featured a 1980’s national tour by the East-West Piano duo, formulated with her Temple U colleague Sylvia Ho. During her more than 40 years as a professional accompanist, she has collaborated with many vocal and instrumental artists in recital, most notably with the late Met Opera bass Jerome Hines. In 1989, together with her husband Joseph, she co-founded Boheme Opera NJ for which she has been Managing Director since 1997. For the past 37 years, she has accompanied, while her husband Joseph has directed, the Congregation Beth Chaim Choir of Princeton Junction.
