Our club was treated to a special performance by three extremely talented singers and Carol Rausch tickling the ivories.
 
Carol became Chorus Master at Chautauqua Institution's, Chautauqua Opera in 1995, and has been visiting the Jamestown Rotary Club every year since 1999. Each time she visits, Carol brings with her a delightful group of singers. This year was no exception!

Joining Carol today were Frank Rosamond, baritone; Megan Grey, mezzo-soprano; and Lorenzo Miguel Garcia, tenor. Each gave their own separate performance.
 
Megan and Miguel then performed in a duet:
