Silver Bells: A Recital of Christmas Favorites in Sudbury with Renée Salewski, Anthony Cleverton, and Charlene Biggs

If you're in the Sudbury area on December 19, you might want to check out Silver Bells, an evening of popular and seasonal favorites performed by soprano Renée Salewski, baritone Anthony Cleverton, and pianist Charlene Biggs. From the event's press release:
The couple who were married this summer, have, between them, performed all over the world including: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, South Korea, France, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Ireland, and of course the UK. Since her last sold out appearance in Sudbury (Fall 2003), Renée has been busy both as a singer and an actress. Alongside her career as a vocalist, Renée has voiced animated characters for up and coming young film makers, been heavily involved in new theatrical writing in London and made her feature film debut in Penny Woolcock’s controversial film ‘Exodus’.

These award winning and critically acclaimed newlyweds will be performing what promises to be a fun and entertaining concert of ‘Popera’ and Christmas Classics with the superb pianist Charlene Biggs on the 19th of December at St. Andrew’s Place, 7 pm. Tickets are $25 and available from Jett Landry Music, both locations of Old Rock, on the door or by calling 694-9090 to book.
