Alexandra SesslerThanks to the donors who attended our June fundraising event, The Passion of Zarzuela, we met  our challenge grant from the Castellano Family Foundation and surpassed our fundraising goal! Donors were treated to a preview performance of our upcoming concert "Zarzuela and Beyond - The Passion of Spanish Music and Dance", which will be held on Saturday September 28th at 7:30 pm.  

The fundraising event took place on Saturday June 1st at the home our co - hosts, Fernando and Cecily Zazueta.  Co chairs of the event were Consuelo Yepiz and Cecily Zazueta. 
Accompanied by composer and artistic director Hector Armienta, Alexandra Sessler performed arias from the Zarzuela repertoire. We are extremely grateful to those that attended the event and those that made it so successful. See you at the September concert.
