Sunday, June 2nd from 2:00 to 4:00pm

Sunday, June 2nd will enter the Chapel Archives as the day we formally started the Historic Cemetery Project [HCP] to expand and enhance the cemetery while preserving Walker Chapel for those who come next.  At 2pm on the 2nd the HCP will host a special concert that will start with a remembrance ceremony to honor those who have passed and are in our care.  As we pause in silence a young voice will fill the Sanctuary with Ave Maria.  We will then start the concert with two acts separated by a short intermission to meet and greet.  The first act will be popular selections from high opera and the second act will be favorite show tunes.  Afterwards there will be a catered reception in the Fellowship Hall to meet the singers.  It will be a ticketed event to benefit the HCP and Opera NOVA and will be sponsored / managed by the Chapel’s Hospitality Fellowship and Opera NOVA.  The box office will open on our website on Sunday, May 12th.  The concert will be recorded with pictures taken for the Chapel archives.

Opera NOVA   was founded in 1992 as a volunteer-based, non-profit charitable organization to bring the joy of opera to residents in the Northern Virginia community. Opera NOVA was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is a 501(c)(3) entity. A part of its mission is to educate adults and children, alike, in its local community by producing 3 to 4 operatic productions each year. 

Under the leadership of Miriam Miller, President, over 55,000 children have been exposed to opera in the Northern Virginia community. “I consider myself a steward for the residents of Arlington, Virginia “Arlingtonians” who formed Opera NOVA; for the members of the Arlington Service League in the 1970s who gave money to fund the first children’s opera and for those who have helped to advance the cause of educating children and adults about the classical arts over the years. I hope to keep that work alive. I see my volunteer work as a contribution to Arlington County and its citizens. Although Opera NOVA serves all of Northern Virginia, I view Arlington as the core of its heart.”
