  • | 3:00pm - 4:25pm | Arts and Entertainment, Taconic Opera Concert Recital
    - Taconic Opera presents New York’s very own La Stupenda (The Great One), Francesca Mondanaro, in Concert Fundraiser

    Currently entering its 19th season and past recipient of the ArtsWestchester Arts Organization of the Year Award, Taconic Opera will be hosting a concert fundraiser featuring one of the most well-received sopranos to ever have performed with the company over its prior 18 year history: soprano Francesca Mondanaro. General Director Dan Montez remembers, “When she first sang for me, it took me a few minutes to realize I was listening to something astounding…I had never heard anything like it in my lifetime. She is, hands down, my favorite soprano in the world, and that is no exaggeration.” It is almost certain that Australia’s La Stupenda, Dame Joan Sutherland, would happily share the moniker with Ms. Mondanaro upon hearing her perform. Audiences will have the opportunity to experience the magic for themselves at a satisfaction-guaranteed performance on Sunday, September 25, 2016, at 3:00 pm at the Music Conservatory of Westchester, 216 Central Ave., White Plains, NY.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
