Please join the Opera Club of The Villages for an evening of entertainment featuring Bill Doherty, Todd Wilander, Marcel D'Entremont, and Kaitlyn McMonigle as they perform for the fundraiser evening benefitting The Harold S. Schwartz Music Scholarship. Accompaniment will be by Sean Pollock.
In 1997, the Opera Club of The Villages established the Harold S. Schwartz Music Scholarship program to honor the founder of The Villages and to commemorate his lifelong love of music. It is a goal of the Opera Club to encourage and support students of music in developing their talent and achieving their educational goals, which will in turn enrich all of our lives. Since 2005, more than $378,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to students in Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties. This year, after our 2017 auditions, $27,000 was awarded to four talented winners.
