Thursday, April 24, 6:00 pm, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street

Julie Adams, soprano and Cathy Miller, pianist will grace the galleries at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art for this season’s final Pop Up Opera performance.  Ms. Adams (a Music Academy of the West alum) was just named the 2014 winner of the very prestigious Metropolitan Opera, National Council Auditions Competition; she is a California native, and is thrilled to have been awarded such an honor.  As a tribute to living American artist Michelle Stuart this program will offer works from purely American composers, which will include the familiar tunes of George Gershwin, and a modern selection from Andre Previn’s A Streetcar Named Desire.  This concert promises to be part of the grand finale to the Opera Santa Barbara Season. This performance is offered free to the general public.
