Black Tie International:
Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education Musicale Benefit

 Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education honored DEBORAH VOIGT at its Musicale benefit on Tuesday, May 13th at 6:00 pm at the home of Maria Eugenia and William Haseltine in Manhattan.  Casita Maria is a 80-year old South Bronx-based community arts and educational organization that presents free, diverse, contemporary visual and performing arts and education programming for all ages. The proceeds from the Musicale will benefit Casita Maria’s Music Program, founded by Gaetana Enders, a board member of the organization.

“The mission of Casita Maria’s music program is to develop a life-long love of music through music making, music literacy and performing. Our Musicale Honoree DEBORAH VOIGT, and our performer, ALEXANDER ROMANOVSKY, deeply believe in the transformational power of music in the lives of our youth and we were honored to have them at this year’s event,” explained Sarah Calderon, Executive Director at Casita Maria. The Music Program broadens the horizons for children who lack the opportunity to experience, learn music and derive the benefits from such
an education.

 DEBORAH VOIGT received the first Musicale Award for her outstanding contributions to music. Voigt is increasingly recognized as one of the world’s most versatile singers and one of music’s most endearing personalities. Through her performances and television appearances, she has distinguished herself through the singular power and beauty of her voice, as well as for her captivating stage presence. A leading dramatic soprano, internationally revered for her performances in the operas of Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, she is also celebrated for her portrayals of some of the greatest heroines of Italian opera. An active recitalist and performer of Broadway standards and popular songs, Voigt has an extensive discography, and has given many enthusiastically received master classes. She also appears regularly, as both performer and host, in the Metropolitan Opera’s The Met: Live in HD series, which is transmitted live to movie theaters across the U.S. and overseas.

The Musicale performer, ALEXANDER ROMANOVSKY, won the First Prize in the Busoni competition at the age of 17, Romanovsky has appeared as soloist with many orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Mariinsky Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic, Filarmonica della Scala and Tokyo Symphony, performing with conductors Valery Gergiev, Michael Pletnev, Alan Gilbert, and James Conlon, among others. A native of Ukraine, Romanovsky is a frequent recitalist in the music capitals of Europe, including Amsterdam, London, Milan, Rome, Moscow and
St Petersburg. He is an exclusive recording artist of Decca.
Romanovsky donated his talent for the Musicale.

The Musicale was supported by Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center, Bristol Myers-Squibb, and donations from individuals. For more information about the Casita Maria Music Program please visit
