Opera Cocktales and
Classical vocal ensemble Notte Voci
A concert of Operatic and American Classics in June!
The SF/Bay classical music scene is a small world. And that is a good thing. Your Opera Cocktales singers and the Notte Voci singers have known each other and have performed together in many various configurations for years. And they are happy to regroup yet again for June Opera Cocktales.
Notte Voci recently performed a set of American classics in April and had so much fun that they wanted to present it again. And Opera Cocktales most graciously extended an invitation do just that!
Join us Wednesday, June 7th, at Martuni’s in San Francisco from 6:30 to 8:30 for some well crafted cocktails, opera (Verdi, Mozart and Bizet) and American Classics (Rodgers and Hammerstein, Gershwin and Sondheim) swirled together for a night of cool Opera Cocktales!
