On February 28th we hosted our Opera Tea in honor of famous opera soloist and Lebanon resident, Laura Bellini. Born in Lebanon, Ohio, Laura Bellini (1848-1931) was a soprano opera singer of note on three continents. Her magnificent singing voice was discovered when she was in a local church choir.

A sold out crowd enjoyed a special Lunch & Learn Christmas concert put on by The Bones of Cincinnatus, a trombone ensemble with members from all over the Greater Cincinnati area. It is named after the Revolutionary War officers’ organization the Order of Cincinnatus, as is the city of Cincinnati. The order was named for farmer and the Roman General Cincinnatus. In 458 B.C., after defeating an enemy, he resigned from the most powerful position in the army to return to his farm. In 1783, General George Washington, following the signing of the Treaty of Paris, resigned as commander in chief of the Continental Army and retired to his home at Mount Vernon, Virginia following the example of the order's namesake.
The trombonists that make up this group, after coming together for the enjoyment of audiences and the fellowship of making beautiful trombone music, return, like Cincinnatus, to their private lives when their performance ends.
The Bones of Cincinnatus program for the December Lunch & Learn consisted of some well-known Christmas music, as well as some holiday season classics, arranged for the unique capabilities of the trombone ensemble.
