Early summer, the Harrower Summer Opera Workshop concluded one of its most exciting seasons in thirty-one years, with productions of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and “VIVA VERDI… and Friends,” a full scenes program.  Enrollment was second only to the 30th Anniversary season’s attendance.  In addition to Executive Director W. Dwight Coleman and Artistic Director Carroll Freeman, Georgia State faculty members Kathryn Hartgrove, Rick Clement and Kay Paschal nurtured the many participants in masterclasses and workshops.  Tomer Zvulun, general director of The Atlanta Opera, and world-famous countertenor David Daniels gave masterclasses, and Daniels starred as guest artist at Harrower’s fundraising gala dinner.  “We’ve had some very celebrated guests,” said Artistic Director Freeman.  Noting that there has been an explosion of attendance in recent years he added, “Our change to a full production experience has been intriguing to young performers who want to add full roles to their resumes.”
