Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe series continues April 13

Community Concerts of Rancho Santa will hold the fourth and final concert of the season on Friday, April 13. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for complimentary wine and appetizers. The performance begins at 7 p.m.

Christiane Noll will perform with a variety of songs and styles. She is known as being “one of the most versatile actresses in the American Musical Theatre,” with a varied repertoire in Broadway, Opera, Operetta and Jazz.

Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Noll has been wowing audiences on Broadway, in theatre and internationally for many years. She has been nominated for both a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award and recently won the Helen Hayes award for her portrayal of Mother in the revival of Ragtime. Other credits include performing with such renowned musical orchestras as the National, Jerusalem, San Francisco and Detroit Symphonies, as well as the Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Boston Pops.

Noll has “received an Ovation Award for her comedic turn as Hope Cladwell in the National Tour of Urinetown, wowed audiences again as Vanna Vane in the new musical The Mambo Kings and soared as Jane Smart in the American premiere of The Witches of Eastwick.” Her performance will add to the eclectic artistry, promoted by CCofRSF, and to the enthusiasm of many who enjoy quality music that has heart and soul.

CCofRSF will continue its dedication to creating a delightful atmosphere for the audience, while making available the best possible musical entertainment in our community. Complimentary wine, donated by Northern Trust Bank, catered hors d’ oeuvres, dessert, coffee and soft drinks are served prior to the performance and at intermission. To encourage future musical appreciation, children less than 18 years old are admitted without charge, when accompanied by an adult. Following each concert, individuals who have contributed at the Sponsor, Benefactor or Patron Levels of charitable giving are invited to a reception with the artists at a private residence in the area.

Community Concerts of Rancho Santa Fe, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, community services organization, recently established the Holly Wilson Performing Arts Student Scholarship. Ms. Wilson was the founder of this organization over 12 years ago. Funding will come from the CCofRSF Endowment Fund at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. The winner, a graduating high school student, will receive $2,500/year for four years, for assistance in pursuing an education in the performing arts at the college level.

Consider joining CCofRSF for the 2012-13 Season, which will include four stunning performances, beginning Friday, October 12, 2012. All concerts next season will be held on Friday evenings.

According to many of our subscribers, each season outperforms the previous one.
