Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - New­port, VT

What is a DIVA? A diva is a woman who is ex­tremely tal­ented. Divas have his­tor­i­cally ac­quired huge num­bers of fans, and their tal­ents are of­ten in high de­mand. The first divas were prob­a­bly no­table prima don­nas from the opera world and were be­ing her­alded as divas as early as the 1880s. Over time, the term be­gan to spill into other mu­si­cal gen­res as well, many of these divas are famed for their grace and cul­ture as well as their mu­si­cal tal­ent, and per­for­mances by these cel­e­brated singers tend to sell out quickly. So be­fore DU­EL­ING DIVAS sells out, be sure to get your tick­ets for this ONE NIGHT ONLY BEN­E­FIT per­for­mance, Novem­ber 17, 7 p.m at the Goodrich Memo­rial Li­brary.
