[Denyce Graves and George Shirley]

John Malveaux of MusicUNTOLD sends this news, and notes that Attending Artists will include George Shirley and Denyce Graves:
"Dec 7
The METROPOLITAN OPERA GUILD presents its 75th anniversary luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. For three quarters of a century, the Guild’s annual luncheon has honored the great artists of opera, from Bruno Walter and Marjorie Lawrence in its first years to Kiri Te Kanawa, Franco Zeffirelli, Plácido Domingo, and Frederica von Stade more recently. To mark the occasion of its 75th anniversary, the artists will this year honor the Guild: a large contingent of current Met stars will participate in a musical celebration of this milestone, and two short videos will highlight the past, present, and future of the Metropolitan Opera Guild.
