Sister divas make third visit to Vergennes

VERGENNES - The Vergennes Opera House rang with harmonious song from the Hebert sisters. In celebration of the winter season, and a much anticipated college break, the young divas performed a benefit concert Dec. 27. Accompanied by pianist Annette Franklin, they presented an afternoon of seasonal songs.

The sisters and their good friend, tenor Dan Ansaldo, brought an afternoon of familiar and memorable songs selected from their collection of favorites.

This was the Hebert sisters' third performance at the Vergennes Opera House since their public debut in 2007. Their return to Vergennes was due to the efforts of Dr. Kevin Parizo and their professors at Nyack College in New York where they've honed their vocal chords on operas such as "La Traviata" and "La Boheme".

Michela Hebert recently graduated from Nyack College and married to Evan Brownell in 2008. She will be auditioning for the role of Mimi in "La Boheme" with Opera North based in New Hampshire.

Anna Hebert is completing her senior year at Nyack and will continue on with an additional semester to receive her teachers' certification in music education. Anna will be singing the role of Giorgetta in a spring production of Puccinis "Il Tabarro".
