Sonya is a regular performer at our annual and beloved Colly Concert, this year honoring us with her presence for Italian Night. Interestingly, Sonya Lee is the daughter of alumnus Doug Lee, who worked with Paolo Soleri during many of the early years of the Cosanti Foundation.
The duo provided a selection of pieces, both classical and opera. They spared no emotion, as each piece filled our eyes with vistas far and wide; enlarging the specious present to include, again, memories of a forgotten past, we danced.
Thank you to everyone that came out and made Italian Night such a special evening.
