Big things are happening with Chattanooga’s opera scene! First off, there’s Divas and Drinks, a sort of open mic night for classical singers that happens about every six weeks or so. The next event is happening this Sunday, March 3rd, and the theme is Operetta Madness. I’ll be singing in trios from Die Fledermaus and The Mikado, as well as probably doing a solo or two. If you want to sing or just listen to some wonderful music, come join us!

Second, Divas and Drinks has spun off Artisti Affamati, Chattanooga’s newest opera company. They will be presenting the American opera Shanewis: The Robin Woman on April 19 and 20, 2013, as part of the spark arts festival. In this production, I will be singing the role of Mrs. Everton. The opera is short – it runs about an hour in length – and the music is beautiful. I hope you’ll join us for this exciting event! The performances will be free, but if you’d like to help us out financially, you can send donations through our kickstarter campaign.

It’s an exciting time to be an opera aficionado in Chattanooga!
