Love seeing young opera singers perform; they really are the next generation that will carry on this beautiful art form. I also appreciate the safety measures the school is taking to combat COVID-19. I have been in quarantine for over a year, and I miss hearing live, in-person music performances so much. I have been able to attend virtual opera performances through Facebook Live, though, and they have been amazing. The Salon Series that I have been watching are on the Giulio Gari Foundation’s page, and the next one is on March 31st at 7pm EST and features decorated performer Steven LaBrie. LaBrie is best known for playing Marcello in La Boheme! If you’d like to have a safe, fun night of opera, join me on Facebook Live to watch him perform!
Awesome performance at the library today! My kiddos (ages 4, 2, and 6 months) were mesmerized. Thanks to y’all and Piccolo Spoleto Festival for having free little-kid-friendly events to get our littles hooked on music and the arts early!!

CofC Opera is designed to promote, educate, and entertain audiences interested in Opera at the College of Charleston. College of Charleston Opera presents award-winning student singers in several theatrical productions throughout the year.

In the Fall semester, evenings of operatic and musical theatre scenes are presented; these scenes help our singers grow in stagecraft experience. In the Spring term, a full mainstage production is presented. The CofC Opera students also create a Children's Opera based on popular operatic tunes. This performance is toured throughout local elementary schools to bring music to children. Saundra Deathos-Meers is the Director of College of Charleston Opera; Amanda Castellone is the Assistant Director. Lorna Barker assists at the piano.
