On Monday, July 29 the North Carolina Opera hosts a free event to announce and kick-off their new season of productions. The festive grand reveal of the new season takes place at CAM Raleigh (409 W Martin Street) from 6:00-8:00pm and is open to the public.
This event, co-hosted with WCPE (the classical station), features live opera performances, a chance to win give-aways from events partners (including one free full season subscription to the NC Opera), a Quail Ridge Books & Music opera pop-up store, complimentary drinks/snacks, local craft beer donated by Raleigh Brewing Company, and a presentation of the upcoming season by NC Opera’s Artistic Director and Resident Conductor Timothy Myers.
“We are so proud to support the booming opera scene in North Carolina which is making great music more accessible to community than ever before with events like these.” says Tara Lynn, WCPE Community and Arts Liaison.
North Carolina Opera General Director Eric Mitchko adds “This is a great chance for the public to come learn more about their local opera scene and even hear live pieces performed from our upcoming shows as a taste of what’s to come. It’ll be perfect for both seasoned opera lovers and new-comers alike. All are welcome!”
Don’t miss this fun and unique event and a chance to mix and mingle with fellow local music and opera lovers, NC Opera staff and performers and your favorite WCPE on-air personalities. Families are welcome to attend as well!
Event space is generously donated by CAM Raleigh.
