This looks like a great community for passionate, aspiring singers and performers, and I wanted to share with all of you that the Giulio Gari Foundation will be hosting another live streamed show as a part of their Salon Series which can be found on their page. This amazing series is a great way to connect with the opera community, as it is a collection of fantastic live-streamed events featuring the talent of special guests, who share their personal experiences, and discuss and celebrate the world of opera. Their next upcoming event in the series will showcase the immense talent of opera singer and tenor Errin Brooks, who has an impressive resume of performances, and is looking forward to performing at the Met soon, along with creating a few virtual projects. This show will air on July 21st at 7pm EST through Giulio Gari’s page. I hope all of you get a chance to tune in and stream Brooks’s premiere episode on the Giulio Gari Foundation’s Facebook live!
An unforgettable weekend of ARTS UNDER THE OAKS:

"Many under the wind-rumbling tent evidenced solid, stirring professional potential. More heartening still was this rare moment of arts ascendant as a new generation were granted a hard-won chance to perform. I venture to guess those aspiring performers will long remember the magic of the weekend when they helped ensure the arts prevail against daunting odds."

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!
The College of Charleston School of the Arts Festival: Arts under the Oaks will offer an entertaining day of performances by the College of Charleston Department of Music alongside College of Charleston Theatre and Dance.

We are thrilled for this collaboration with Charleston Symphony !! Only a couple weeks away!

A timeless fairytale of darkness, light, and finding one’s way in the world, Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) opera explores the search for truth and reason, love and enlightenment. The production is a collaboration among the College of Charleston’s Department of Music and Department of Theatre and Dance, as well as the Charleston Symphony 🎭

Directed by Theatre Associate Professor Evan Parry, the production is recommended for all ages. Parry describes the opera: “Through comedy and romance, the blend of the human and the supernatural brings the audience into a journey of trials and tribulations on the path toward a deeper understanding of true love and happiness.”

Performances of The Magic Flute will take place at the Sottile Theatre on February 25 at 7:30 p.m. and February 27 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through the George Street Box Office online, by emailing [email protected], calling (843) 953-4726 or in person.

Fresh off his recent performance in the Metropolitan Opera’s production of “The Magic Flute,” Morris Robinson, '91, is excited to return to Charleston for Masterworks of Voice and Drama on Thursday, February 3.

In addition, Robinson will work directly with the College of Charleston’s voice students in a masterclass as the students prepare for their production of “The Magic Flute,” — a collaboration between the College’s Department of Music and Department of Theatre and Dance, as well as the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. Robinson’s student interaction is timely as he recently finished singing for a new adaptation of “The Magic Flute” for cinema, set to be released at the end of 2022 in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland by Tobis Film.

College of Charleston Opera is excited about our upcoming production of Mozart's 'Die Zauberflöte' in the Sottile Theatre in February 2022. Both the faculty and students are thrilled to be performing again after the trials of producing opera during a pandemic. We were lucky enough to have thrived and provide our students a performance opportunity during this time with a successful outdoor venture, the SOTA Festival, at the Stono Preserve last April where CofC Opera performed 'Le Nozze di Figaro' for a live audience. We want to continue to provide meaningful performance opportunities for our students to hone their craft and grow the significance our program. Your donation on Giving Tuesday ensures a bright future for our student-centric training, productions and performances.
