'Three Divas' Concert Showcases Student Talent

Janelle Laurenti, a California State University, Sacramento student preparing to compete in the country's most prestigious opera competition, will be one of three featured students in "The Three Divas," a free opera concert Wednesday, Feb. 9. The event will be in the CSUS Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall and begins at 8 p.m.

Laurenti, 22, will sing from the repertoire she has prepared for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Competition, to be held in New York in late February. She is the first CSUS student to win the opportunity to sing at the competition.

Also featured at the concert will be Michelle Detweiler, who won the CSUS music department's annual concerto competition last year, and Miriam Boncato, who will play the part of Susanna in a local presentation of Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro this year.

More information is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
