Opera Guild Event
Saturday, August 23, 2014, 4:30 PM
At Silvia and Larry Lin’s, 921 Kirkcrest Road, Alamo
Join us for a delightful afternoon and evening with your fellow opera lovers!  We’ll start the afternoon by informing you about East Bay Chapter’s past fiscal year, as well as about plans for the coming year.   After installing the new Board of Directors, we will enjoy a potluck supper, embellished by wine served by the beverage stewards.  Please bring a carb salad, green salad, cold meat, or shrimp.  The board members will provide desserts.
Our speaker will be Linda Riebel (wife of Chapter member Brad Wade), who has just published a book about international star mezzo-soprano Irene Dalis and the company she founded, Opera San Jose. Linda will share unforgettable stories from Miss Dalis's career, selected arias from her Met and Bayreuth recordings, and photographs and stories that didn't make it into the book. "Irene Dalis: Diva, Impresaria, Legend" is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with Miss Dalis, former Opera San Jose singers who went on to impressive opera careers, stage directors, conductors, board and staff members, and OSJ patrons
This event is open to all!
