Burke Buzzes About Busy Bee
The latest Florentine project, an original opera for children, The Busy Bee, was a huge success!
Burke Properties supports the Florentine in a number of ways. Our president, Wendy Burke, is a member of their board of directors and regularly attends performances; Riva Treasure, our office manager and marketing director, had her very first opera experience last year; Melba Zanoni, our front desk receptionist goes to almost everything they do and is forever ‘talking opera’; other employees are also very interested and may attend a show in future. But this time, Burke really put on the buzz on for Busy Bee. Wendy’s son, Charles Slocum, sponsored a performance of Bee for his class at University School.
Above is a photo from their performance at the back room of Colectivo-Prospect. It was jam-packed with parents and kids. They all loved the gentle story, told through song and dance, of Bella, the honeybee, finding her place in the hive. Kudos to the Florentine!
Be sure to attend a Florentine Opera performance when you get a chance! As Charles would say, “go to the opera kids”.
