On Thursday, February 9th at 5pm FGO is doing something special that I have not seen done in any other opera company. We are flying in nationally acclaimed contralto Nicole Mitchell to come in and present a casual, fun concert of songs and arias JUST for our teens and youth groups involved in FGO. If you’re unaware, a Contralto is a very rare female voice part that is the lowest and most resonant of all the female voices.
It’s completely free and there will be food after the concert and a chance to mingle and speak with Nicole (She’s really nice! We were roommates in Sarasota Opera about a million years ago). The concert will only be about an hour long and will be very casual.
I would love for you to come to this great event. It will be covered in Opera America and will hopefully be the first of a long tradition of concerts for youth at FGO.
