Inaugural Salon Social a Success!

Today was our first Salon Social at the Fieldhouse with guest opera singer, Elaina Moreau! Elaina sang a selection of German lieder, Finnish art songs, and “Padre, germani, addio!” From Mozart’s opera “Idomeneo”. It was a fantastic concert! After, we had tea and snacks, then, gathered into a circle to chat with Elaina. It was a lovely afternoon. Stay tuned for our next Salon Social sometime in April – enjoy beautiful singing, meet your community, meet the artist. Admission is free. All at Oak Park Fieldhouse.

Getting in tune!

The piano tuner is here – at the Fieldhouse – and the piano is in pieces! It’s getting a much needed tuning in time for tomorrow’s first Salon Social afternoon with soprano Elaina Moreau.

Community Opera Chorus – Day One!

It was our first Community Opera Chorus practice today and we had a fabulous turnout! We started with some breath work and warmups, then got to work on our first piece the “Te deum” from TOSCA by Puccini. We are working slowly with explanations on how to read an opera score and how to pronounce the languages that we will be singing in. The Fieldhouse was filled with new singers!
