Operal NOVA Concert Honors Community Servants


Opera NOVA will hold a community concert to honor five prominent Arlington individuals as well as the many people who serve Arlington through their work as firefighters, police, electrical workers, hospital volunteers, civic association and federation volunteers.

The concert will be held at Walker Chapel United Methodist Church on Glebe Road on Sept. 16 at 3 p.m. Due to limited space, an RSVP is requested at 703-536-7557 or operanovaoffice@gmail.com

The five individuals to be honored through narration and musical celebration are Dr. Alfred O. Taylor Jr., Lola Reinsch, Sidney Dewberry, Preston Caruthers and Bill Bostwick.

The concert will be followed by a reception at the church.

Opera NOVA was established in 1962 and has evolved as a resource for the arts reaching the community where they live — targeting seniors, children and the diverse Arlington population with the opportunity to have the arts as part of their experience. Arlington is the smallest entity in the United States to have its own opera.
