Come enjoy an evening of glorious music by Leonard Bernstein, Rodgers and Hammerstein II, Elton John, Henry Mancini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Freddie Mercury (and more!) and make a difference in our Bay Area communities at the same time! You'll also get to tap your toes to the talents of our special guest artists, Michael Maguire (Tony Award Winner, Les Misérables) Billy Valentine (Sons of Anarchy, Boston Legal TV series vocalist) and Julie Garnyé (Singer, actress, voiceover artist).
Sing for America is a not-for-profit organization focused on supporting the performing arts. Much the same way one would train for a triathlon for breast cancer while fundraising online, SFA helps people, like me, raise funds through singing in a grand Benefit Concert while championing causes and/or organizations of our choosing. Last year, the SFA Chorus raised over $110,000.
This year, I’ll be raising my voice in support of Opera à la Carte’s School Scholarship fund. The San Francisco Opera Guild’s Opera à la Carte program brings the sights and sounds of opera to schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area (locations include San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Rosa, Richmond, Oakland, Berkeley, San Jose, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Eureka, and more) by giving their 4th – 8th grade students the opportunity to perform alongside professional singers in exciting, immersive productions. OALC’s school scholarship fund helps support schools in giving their students a chance to share in the amazing experience of opera and performance.
Last Fall, I had the privilege of being a Teaching Artist in OALC’s production of The Magic Flute and it was truly inspiring to see how much the student performers and their classmates enjoyed themselves and grew from their adventure in opera.Please help me support OALC’s School Scholarship Fund and the Sing for America Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation on my page: http://www.classy.org/OALCscholarships.
You can also support me by coming to our show and buying tickets with my unique coupon code, SFA034, at checkout. You’ll also get a $5 discount and half the ticket price will go to the School Scholarship Fund.Even if you can’t make a donation or buy tickets, please help me reach my goal by sharing my page on Facebook and Twitter or by sending an email to friends who you think might be interested in contributing. Thank you for your generosity and we can’t wait to share this wonderful evening with you!!!
