NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The New Rochelle Opera hopes its audience will feel the love on Valentine's Day weekend with its Operatic Love Fest.

The performance, which is in its fourth year, will be on Saturday, Feb. 15, at the wedding chapel at The Fountainhead.

The fund-raiser concert will feature arias, duets and ensemble pieces that relate to the theme of love performed by company soloists: soprano Kelli Butler, mezzo-soprano Sara Petrocelli, tenor Joshua Benevento and baritone Chad Armstrong.

The singers will be accompanied by Renee Guerrero, and the opera's artistic director, Camille Coppola, will narrate the program.

“We’ve been presenting the Love Fest concert for the past three years,” said Coppola, “It continues to be extremely popular with our patrons, so we continue to give them what they want.”

"The show generates a lot of interest among the patrons and New Rochelle residents," said Tom Coppola, director of press and marketing.

The first two Love Fest concerts were held at Top of the Roc, but the company began presenting them at The Fountainhead in 2013.

The New Rochelle Opera Company was formed for the purpose of presenting imaginative and appealing operatic productions to the Westchester community.

The company produces one major production a year in June at the Ursuline School and produces several other minor ones at other venues.

Tickets are $50 and a reception of wine and hors d’oeuvres is included.

The Fountainhead is at 55 Quaker Ridge Road. Tickets are limited and can be purchased online at For more information, call 914-576-1617.
