Opera, Etc. will be performing a smaller, more intimate concert at the Hill Country Healing Haven in Dripping Springs. More details are forthcoming.
The Opera at the Library program in Lakeway was another success. We introduced some new material which was well received by the attentive and enthusiastic audience. We look forward to performing there again in the future!
We made a brief appearance at a concert to benefit the Lake Travis Crisis Ministries center, a non-profit organization, at The Lakeway Church. The main performances were held by several Lakeway area choirs: The Lakeway Church Choir, The United Methodist Church Choir, Lake Travis Middle School Choir, Lake Travis High School Choir, and the Wildflowers. It was a joyous, musical afternoon in support of a very worthy cause, and we are proud to have been a small part of it.
Opera, Etc. performed An Afternoon of Opera at the Lakeway Activity Center, to the delight of the audience members, which included children and adults of all ages. It was a new venue for us, and we had a great time singing many of our favorite arias, duets, and a trio from Mozart, Puccini, Rossini, Saint-Saens, and more. It was wonderful to be back on stage, performing for a live audience!
Once again, the Opera at the Library program in Lakeway was standing room only, followed by another standing ovation. It was a joy to return to that venue. The audience was so appreciative and wonderfully supportive, filled with opera lovers of all ages, including children. We certainly love seeing children come to our concerts and learn to enjoy and appreciate opera!
The Opera at the Library program in Lakeway was standing room only at the Lake Travis Community Library. The audience was very appreciative, offering a standing ovation after the performance. Adults of all ages, as well as children were in attendance, and the library has asked Opera, Etc. to return in the fall.
Opera, Etc. performed its Mostly Mozart: An Evening of Opera program at the Dripping Springs Community Library in honor of Mozart’s birthday. The overflow crowd heard selections from Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutti, Die Zauberflöte, La Clemenza di Tito, as well as a few select pieces by other notable composers. The overwhelmingly positive response from the appreciative crowd showed us that there was a hunger for this kind of thing!
In an article about the performance, from the Dripping Springs Century News, Editor John Pacheco wrote, “For the concert, the room children’s library section was filled to capacity, and additional chairs had to be hastily brought into the room to facilitate a larger than expected audience. At the end of the concert, Scott, DeMichelle, and Hammons received a standing ovation from the audience.”
