Music studies gives contest winner an edge

First-year music student Elizabeth Zuwala won Thursday’s DailyNews contest and two tickets to see Ascolta La Ciociaria, a celebration of classical Italian music, Tuesday, September 27, at 7:30 p.m. in Assumption University Chapel.

Zuwala's name was drawn from all respondents who correctly translated Il Canto degli Italiani as The Song of the Italians, identified Il trovatore as the source of the aria Stride la vampa!, and named Giacomo Puccini as the composer of Tosca.

Tuesday’s concert will feature instructors from the UWindsor School of Music as well as musicians from Italy. Tickets are $10, available at the door or in advance by phone at 519-253-3000, ext. 4212.
