PENTICTON - A short survey of the history of opera: an introduction to operatic styles, composers, voices and stories. The focus will be on the composers and their works that are key to the evolution of the art form. We will also take a moment to look into the current trends of contemporary opera.

Mia Harris is a classical singer who sings frequently throughout the Okanagan as well as Kamloops and Vancouver. She teaches private voice lessons at the Penticton Academy of Music as well as early childhood music classes with Little Tree Music Together. Her next engagements include appearances with the Musaic Vocal Ensemble of Penticton, as well as with the Vivace Chorale in Kamloops this coming April.

Anyone wanting to spice up their lunch hour with interesting presentations and discussions on a variety of heritage and culture topics are encouraged to come to the museum auditorium and enjoy some great brain food.

Presentations are in the Museum Auditorium (785 Main St) and include coffee, tea and confections.
