Fresh Squeezed Opera proudly presents our 2023 Showcase: Second Chances

This year, we combed through past calls for scores, looking for deserving pieces that we simply did not have room to program previously. We selected four incredible pieces that we know you are going to love!

To honor our theme of "second chances" we are giving a space a second chance - a former office space will be transformed, using scenic pieces from our 2023 Mainstage Opera redesigned by visual designer Cara Search, into an inspirational venue for vocal chamber music.

Finally, sommelier Brian Long has curated a lovely list of beverages for our post-concert reception (which will be in the same space), featuring St. Supéry Dolarhide Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Poggio Anima 'Lilith' Primitivo 2021, and an Anytime Spritz!
