Hear the next generation of opera stars in this second annual recital celebrating the talents of our 2016 Gaddes Festival Artists and Gerdine Young Artists. Out of over 1,000 applicants, only 38 singers were chosen to be part of this season’s young artist programs. Usually seen in ensemble roles during mainstage productions, these exceptionally talented artists take center stage in a one-night-only concert, accompanied on stage by the members of the St. Louis Symphony. Featuring performances of opera’s greatest hits and cherished rarities, this night is the perfect operatic sampler. Stephanie Blythe and Aubrey Allicock emcee this showcase concert.
