Opera Night, “A Night in Italy,” was a Knoxville Opera performance treat, which was enjoyed by about 40 Fox Den Country Club members — along with a delicious meal by the FDCC kitchen staff — in the Club’s main ballroom Saturday evening, Jan. 9.

Brian Salesky, KO artistic director who served as the Opera company’s executive director for 15 seasons, introduced the selections to be performed then accompanied singers Jacqueline Brecheen, Cornelia Lotito and Tim Pope on piano.

Roughly 15 selections were presented, as the trio of singers performed together, in pairs and solo.
