To the Editor:
Fairmont has a real treat coming to town on April 11 as the Opera House hosts Catherine Russell. Her voice is reminiscent of days past in her roots of jazz, R&B and Southern blues, yet her sound is still relevant and fresh today.
I first saw Catherine perform live a few years ago with the "Dukes of September" group (Donald Fagan, Michael McDonald and Boz Skaggs) and was delighted to learn she was booked for a Fairmont performance.
Fairmont is so fortunate to have a venue like the Opera House and I have certainly have benefitted from the arts education on and off the Opera House stage.
Please join me in supporting our Opera House. See a show, consider membership or remember the Opera House as beneficiary in your will, trust, retirement account plan or life insurance policy. Our Opera House needs our support to continue.
My heartfelt thanks and kudos to Kathi Peterson, Opera House manager, in bringing talent of this caliber to town.
See you at the show on Friday April 11 for an unforgettable night of great music.
Kind regards from a native Fairmonter.
Kathy (Seidel) Vargo
