Opera San Luis Obispo is proud to announce the premier of a new North County summer event, “Broadway On The Lake,” Sunday, August 11 at 4 p.m. at the Atascadero Lake Pavilion (doors open at 3 p.m. for food, wine and art auction). 

“Broadway On The Lake” brings a nationally acclaimed quintet of performers including sopranos Shira Renee Thomas and Katie McTyre, tenor Dylan Scott Thomas, baritone Brayden Hade, and pianist Chris Wade in a concert of hits from “Guys and Dolls,” “Carousel,” “The Music Man,” “Show Boat,” “Into The Woods,” “Company,” and several others hit titles including a special sneak preview to OpreaSLO’s grand October production of “South Pacific!” 

OperaSLO is especially excited to introduce performances by two fantastic local student singers, both aspiring to become professional musicians. Proceeds from this event benefit OperaSLO’s Opera In Education program which closely partners with the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education in scheduling OperaSLO educational performance programs in schools throughout our county. Additional OperaSLO Opera In Education programs include an annual two-week Children’s Summer Opera Camp, Students at the MET HD, and Students at the Amphitheatre (Vina Robles). 

Complementing the exciting concert, admission includes select wines from Opolo Winery, delicious appetizers and charcuterie by Templeton’s award winning nonprofit restaurant Fig At Courtney’s House. A magnificent silent Art Auction and decadent Cake Auction will help raise funds for OperaSLO’s 2019-2020 season while demonstrating the talents of artists and bakers from all over the Central Coast! 

Tickets are $45 per person, and include wine, food, and the show.
