AmiciMusic presents “A Night in Vienna: Opera Favorites from Mozart, Lehár and Strauss”

AmiciMusic, Asheville’s award-winning music organization dedicated to high-quality, intimate performances, will present a very elegant and entertaining evening of famous operatic scenes and arias from three great Viennese composers – Mozart, Lehar and Strauss – on Sunday, March 26 at 4 p.m. at the Orchard Inn, a fundraiser to benefit the Saluda Historic Depot. 

Singers Amanda Horton and Jonathan Ross, both well-known to area audiences for their great musicality, spirit and chemistry, will team up with AmiciMusic Artistic Director Daniel Weiser on piano for this spectacular semi-staged show filled with great singing, costumes and witty repartee.

They will sing excerpts from some of their signature roles that they have performed with Asheville Lyric Opera and numerous regional companies, including scenes from Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro,” “Don Giovanni,” and “The Magic Flute,” as well as Lehar’s “The Merry Widow” and Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus.”

The Orchard Inn, located at 100 Orchard Inn Lane in Saluda, will be hosting and offering some delicious Viennese hors d’oeuvres as well as a full cash bar. The views will be exquisite, the food incredible, the atmosphere cozy, and the music superb. The concert will benefit the Saluda Historic Depot, a nonprofit dedicated to making the historic train station into a museum in order to highlight the history of the railroad, Saluda’s downtown, its people, and the history of its natural resources.    

Seating will be limited and reservations are required. For more information, please visit
