Friends of the Modesto Library fundraiser, Barnes and Noble-Modesto, October 19, 2019

Opera Modesto and the Becoming Jane Austen Book Club were delighted to partner with JaneCon/Story Into Song event sponsor Friends of the Modesto Library in this fundraiser. Summer Opera Institute grads Elizabeth Barton and Michael Ballerat charmed their audience with selections from Mozart and Verdi, while the BJABC lent Regency era charm to a setting Jane Austen knew and loved--a book store! Many thanks to Barnes and Noble for supporting literacy and our community.
