D’Amato Returns

At St. Luke's Hoie Hall

    Maria D’Amato, a soprano and former lead singer with St. Luke’s Choir, will make a return engagement to East Hampton when she pairs with her fiancé, Dimitrie Lazich, a baritone, for a concert at the church’s Hoie Hall on Saturday at 4 p.m.
    The couple will sing duets of Italian arias, familiar American songs, Broadway tunes, and a special set selected from the works of Sheldon Harnick, an East End resident and Pulitzer Prize-winning lyricist. Bill McNally, the artistic director of the Music at St. Luke’s series, will accompany the singers on piano.
    Ms. D’Amato was previously featured in the Sarasota Opera, playing such roles as Desdemona in “Otello,” and she will play Mimi in “La Boheme” in July. She has also been a soloist with the Seattle Symphony in Mozart’s Requiem and appeared in concert at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall before joining the Metropolitan Opera.
    Refreshments will be served following the concert. Tickets cost $20 for adults; children 18 and under get in free.
