Remembering our friends, The Opera Project presents The Concert of Remembrance on May 22 at 3:30 PM at the Frenchtown Presbyterian Church, Fourth Street, Frenchtown, NJ.


This concert of arias and art songs is dedicated to the memories of Fred Cushman and Deborah Maher. Fred Cushman, international operatic tenor, served as President of The Opera Project for many years. A tireless patron and supporter of the company and its mission to help emerging and developing singers, Fred passed away in mid-2020. Because of COVID, we were unable to mark his passing until now.  Similarly, Deborah Maher, one of the founders of The Opera Project, an opera singer with a magnificent mezzo voice, beloved teacher and fine artist, is remembered every year in May with a birthday concert.


Our special guest, Celtic harpist Carol Thompson, will perform to help us mark this joyful remembrance with the beauty of music, which is a language that is universal.


The Opera Project appears as part of the ongoing concert series of the Frenchtown Presbyterian Church.
