61st GALA
“An Aria to America”

We are pleased to announce that we had a Successful and Fun gala at the Riviera Country Club on November 5, 2016. Our theme embodied opera music from American Composers and was draped in red, white and blue! The attendees were dazzled by the outstanding ballroom decor that fit the theme perfectly, the amazing silent auction and wonderful entertainment of professional singers sharing tunes from American Made Operas in a somewhat “flashmob” style. One could be sitting at their table chatting with their neighbors and all of sudden, the woman on their other side, starts singing “I want to be in America”. It was illuminating! If you missed the evening, you really missed a great time as we raised money to support our opera education programs. But you can still support the programs by clicking on our “DONATE” button on the top of the page.
