Members and friends of the Greater Middletown Chorale were recently cited by the Connecticut General Assembly for their work in bringing Letter from Italy, 1944 to life.
The citations were presented by retiring state Senator Len Suzio, who brought the engrossed citations to Middletown on his last day in office — and his birthday.
Sen. Suzio and Thayer Talbott of the Middlesex County Community Foundation also brought news of financial support for the Letter from Italy, 1944 project.
- The state DECD/Connecticut Office of the Arts has granted $60,000 to the Chorale in support of the documentary accompanying Letter from Italy, 1944.
- The MCCF granted $5,000 in direct support of the Letter from Italy, 1944 production.
