"Let the Music Begin" as Sergio Franchi would have said. On August 24, 2013, a dream was realized by Donne 2000 members. Without a cloud in the sky, it was a beautiful day for a garden party. The beautiful manicured grounds of the 240 acres of the Franchi Estate in Stonington, CT included the main house, a Chapel, Museum, Sergio's antique car collection and spacious area for the main event. There were over 4,000 people in attendance to hear the beautiful music People enjoying the concert by well known opera singers and rising singers. As soon as we arrived, we went to an area with picnic tables set up with tablecloths and adorned with fresh flowers. Many people were dressed up in the "Great Gatsby" theme to celebrate the spirit of the event. After we had our picnic, we walked the grounds to see a col- lection of Sergio's collection of Antique cars. As we were going through the main house admiring all their collections of art and furni- ture, we met our gracious host, Mrs. Eva Franchi. The museum had Sergio's memorabilia from his per- formances such as a tuxedo and a costume from the op- era "I Pagliacci." The Chapel had many memories and a citation from Pope Paul.

Mrs. Franchi opened the concert by thanking every- one who attended the con- cert and all those who gen- erously donated to the schol- arship foundation. The up and coming stars performed brilliantly under the direction of music conductor Jeffrey Domoto who led a 32 piece symphony orchestra. James Valenti who has performed at the Metropolitan Opera house in New York City was wonderful and Soprano D'Ana Lombard also sang beautifully. The Redneck Tenors provided comedy as they sang their opera. They were all very entertaining. Many well known singers such as Michael Amante, Patrick Buanne and many others have performed there. Sergio Franchi came to America to further his opera singing career. But instead became a famous romantic singer and an actor on stage and film. Eva Franchi keeps her late husband's memory alive by hosting this memo- rable event since he so loved opera. It was amazing to see so many people in atten- dance enjoying the music. A great time was enjoyed by all. " ' '~ ' .....
