|If it’s Wednesday night in Wellington and a classically trained soprano and tenor accept bravos for a Bocelli inspired duet as easily as a Peruvian-poncho-and-lamé-shorts clad performance artist receives raucous applause, it must be American Equestrians Got Talent (AEGT).
Now in its third year, the fundraiser is the best deal in town: for 60 bucks you’re entertained by a diversely talented array of singers, dancers, rappers and poets while you enjoy an internationally-themed buffet provided by Wellington Hospitality Service. AEGT is the brainchild of Robert Dover, chef d’equipe of the U.S. Dressage Team, as a way to raise funds for high-performance equestrian programs. The crowd is appreciative and, in true Wellington style, diversity is appreciated and applauded. What a deal!
