102 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Nov. 19 - Nov. 22, 2004 Guest performers join SDCS for 'Messiah' Dec. 11-12 Soprano Serena Benedetti of Philadelphia, and bass baritone Robert Lucien Demers will join the Southern Delaware Choral Society in its performance of Handel's "Messiah" in a concert performance at 7:30 p.m., Sat- urday, Dec. 11, and an audi- ence singalong performance at 3 p.m., Sun- day, Dec. 13, at the Rehoboth Beach Con- BENEDETTI vention Center. The more than 60-voice choral group, under the direction of David Miller, will also be joined by guest performers countertenor George Steinhoff and tenor Matthew Pressley. The guest or- ganist will be Taylor Harvey of Salisbury, Md. "We're very excited to have such an im- pressive range of guest per- formers this year," said Elizabeth Hochholzer, executive di- DEMER8 rector of the society, which was founded 17 years ago. "Among them, they have performed extensively on two continents and we are hon- ored they will be joining us." A resident of Philadelphia, Benedetti's voice has been hailed by one critic as "a pure soprano that soared radiantly in the high climaxes." A recent winner of the Marian Anderson Grant for Emerging Classical Artists, high- lights of her 2004 season include performances with Princeton Uni- versity, Greater Palm Beach Sym- phony Society, Lyric Chamber Music Festival at the Guggen- heim Museum and Virginia Opera Company. In 2005, she will debut with the Utah Opera as Fiordiligi in Mozart's "Cosi fan Tutte." Benedetti has performed in sev- eral operatic roles, including Adi- na in Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'Amore," Susannah in Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro," Rose in Weill's '"Street Scene" and Va- lencienne in "The Merry Widow." She has appeared under the baton of conductors Alan Gilbert, Gian- carlo Guerrero, David Effron and Kent Tritle and performed in the National Cathedral in Washing- ton, D.C. Alice Tully Hall in New York, Swarthmore College's Lang Hall and the Detroit Symphony Hall. Benedetti's many awards in- clude first prize in the New Jersey Master Chorale Young Artists Continued on page 103 Ross Continued from page 101 Christmas since its inception. He works to create arrangements that will complement the room's dG ,cot and reflect the Victorian peri- od. Russell says the Victorian pe- riod is represented more in the containers used - the glassware and vases of the time - than in the flowers which would be seasonal and local or dried. In Victorian times, red and gold would be fa- vored colors, with red roses or carnations predominating. He can be reached at 629-9194. John Beauchamp of John's Four Seasons Florist will be deco- rating the Jester bedroom in the upstairs portion ofthe mansion. He designs arrangements from the traditional and garden styles to contemporary. Beaucham p loves gardening and garden-style arrangements, but at the mansion his work will be more traditional and will also stress natural mate- rials available during the holiday season. He can be contacted at 629-2644. The Victorian Christmas fundraiser is sponsored by the Seaford Historical Society. For more information, call 628-9500. Our 8th Annual ..............
