SCCS - An Introduction to Opera Live

Classical vocal music can reflect many cultural influences and can be experienced in a fun and enlightening way outside the opera house. The program will include art song and opera selections from Italian and German opera, Spanish art song, and English and Latin crossover music.

Popular and folk trends will be linked with classical style, and demonstrate how music can be both timeless and relevent to the current culture and social dynamics. It will present a varied program that will engage you emotionally as it traverses time and cultural boundaries.

It's going to be great!
