Support Your Local Diva

"Lucia's First Love"
March 15th at 2 p.m. at the Gubelman Room
San Juan Community Theater

The talented Corinne Stevens, opera singer and lyric mezzo-soprano, is holding a fundraising concert to raise money for attendance at the Franco American Vocal Academy in Pèrigord, France this summer. Pianist Sarah Willson from Skagit Opera will accompany Stevens. The evening will follow a young woman's first love from introduction and infatuation to conflicts and betrayal. The story will be told through the world's most beautiful music, featuring German lieder from Schumann and Schubert, Italian arias from Puccini and Mozart, English art song from Vaughan Williams and Britten and more. How does the story end? Four endings, ranging from "death by betrayal" to "forgiveness and happiness" will be auctioned off during intermission and the lucky audience member who wins will decide the evening's encore song and the story's ending.

Admission is $20; tickets for sale at the door.

All donations to benefit tuition and travel expenses to the Franco American Vocal Academy (total costs: $14,000) are fully tax-deductible, thanks to fiscal sponsorship from the arts advocacy organization Fractured Atlas, a 501(c)3 corporation. Contributions can be made by credit card online through Fractured Atlas (link to: Corinne Stevens click on "Sponsorship" for details) or by check made payable to Fractured Atlas and mailed to:
