One Book/One Westmoreland Winter 2020

Categories: WSO General
 

Read a great book and receive discounted tickets! The WSO has teamed up with the Westmoreland County Federated Library System to enhance the music experience with a Winter One Book /One Westmoreland program.  Community members are invited to read John Behrendt’s The  City of Falling Angels and join a book discussion.

Turning to the magic, mystery, and decadence of Venice, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil author John Berendt gradually reveals the truth behind a sensational fire that in 1996 destroyed the historic La Fenice opera house. Encountering a rich cast of characters, Berendt tells a tale full of atmosphere and surprise as the stories build, one after the other, ultimately coming together to portray a world as finely drawn as a still-life painting.

Participants will have the opportunity to buy discounted tickets at the book club to the WSO’s concert Italian Opera Fest on April 25, 2020. Find a discussion date below and get reading!
