Afternoon concert Sept. 29 at St. Stephen’s in Westborough

Westborough – Do you enjoy opera, operettas and musicals? If so, join sopranos Leslie Leedberg and Julia Chalfin, with pianist David Collins, Saturday, Sept. 29 for a session of handpicked gems from all three genres as they create a delightful and entertaining one-hour concert called “Opera Jewels.”  The soprano duo will bring the music of world famous composers Mozart, Handel, Delibes, Lehar, Porter, Weil, and Bernstein to life.

The concert will take place at 2 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 3 John St., Westborough. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased at the door or by contacting Leslie at 508-485-3965 or leslie@leedberg.com.

The two sopranos both received their Master of Vocal Performance in 2006. Leedberg has performed as a featured soloist with many groups throughout Massachusetts, including the Assabet Valley Mastersingers and Greater Worcester Opera. She also sings with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, the official chorus for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Pops.  Chaflin has been living and performing as a freelance opera singer in Germany. As a passionate proponent of making classical music more accessible to non-opera audiences, she has made a name for herself as a cabaret artist. She has written, produced and starred in “The Birth of a Diva,” “A Taste of America,” and “Sopranos!”
