Bella Notte Promises an Evening of Italian Delights

Prepare for an evening of gustatory and auditory delights at Bella Notte, featuring an Italian dinner theatre and silent auction. The event, sponsored by Central Washington University’s student chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) will begin at 7:00 p.m. on May 3, 2014, at Gallery One, 408 Pearl St. in Ellensburg. There will be a fabulous Italian feast catered by Wineworks, as well as a brilliant program of Italian song, performed by CWU student vocalists. Tickets are $30, and may be purchased online at

The many musical selections include Puccini’s “Quando men vo” from La Boheme, sung by Brittany Stahley; Mozart’s “Come scoglio” from Cosi fan Tutte, sung by Alix Deenin; and Rossini’s “Ai capricci della sorte,” from L’Italiana in Algeri, performed by Christian Reed and Marija Bosnar.

The proceeds of the event will help CWU vocal students pay for competition/travel fees for the annual NATS auditions. This year, the club will also donate funds to the CWU Opera Ensemble for their spring production.
