Arthur Newman’s 90th Birthday

The Palm Springs Opera Guild of the Desert held a Singing the Praises Gala 2014 honoring Arthur and Patty Newman on Sunday January 26th. The Newmans were honored for the years of support for all the Arts and Humanities in the Coachella Valley. They have given generously of their time, tirelessly and enthusiastically, and opened their pocket books when they felt a need. They have been staunch supporters of the Opera Guild.

The event also marked Arthur Newman’s 90th Birthday. A Huge birthday cake was presented to Arthur at the end of the program. Guests sang Happy Birthday to Arthur, who seemed amused, excited and joyful. He thanked all the guests for coming. Patty Newman also noted the 26th was his brother’s birthday, Oscar winner Actor Paul Newman. A bittersweet moment for them.

Featured entertainment was provided by Rodell Rosel. Rosel was the 2001 winner of the Palm Springs Opera Guild Vocal Competition. He gave a lively and animated performance of favorite songs. He sang “My Way” to Arthur Newman for his birthday. He was accompanied at the piano by Mona Lands. Co-chairs were Jean C. Carrus and Donald Osborne.

The Palm Springs Opera Guild holds a free event every spring, “Opera in The Park” that brings Opera to thousands of people in a beautiful setting. The guild brings talented junior opera singers to introduce the experience of Opera to many for the first time. It also gives Opera lovers a chance to hear new young opera singers and well known stars of the opera.
