Opera San Jose and ArtSmart Commemorate New Partnership With Fundraising Initiative, ARTS FOR ALL

Arts For All will be presented 4:30pm–7:00pm, Saturday, May 6.

Opera San José and ArtSmart have announced a new partnership to support free voice lessons, musical opportunities, and mentorship for under-resourced students in San José.

“With arts education being cut from schools, it is up to organizations like ours to step in and work to eliminate economic barriers to arts access,” says Opera San José General Director Shawna Lucey. “By working together, we can greatly expand the impact on our communities. Everyone deserves the chance to express themselves through the magic of music.”

In celebration of this new collaboration, OSJ and ArtSmart invite Bay Area music lovers to its Arts For All fundraising initiative in the historic downtown district of Redwood City, where attendees will have a delightful opportunity to witness how opera comes to life. Guests will be welcomed with delicious hors d’oeuvres and open bar cocktails as they view auction items – from European Viking Rivers Cruises to a private at-home concert; one-on-one time with opera industry leaders, unique artwork, the chance to be a supernumerary in an OSJ production next year, and much more.

Come celebrate with us! Great food – open bar – fabulous auction items and a must-see concert!

Join us to hear world famous operatic tenor and ArtSmart co-founder Michael Fabiano perform alongside the Opera San José (OSJ) Resident Artists. The evening will also include a mini-masterclass with Michael, General Director Shawna Lucey, and star of OSJ’s Tosca, Maria Natale. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness how opera comes to life!

Come celebrate our new partnership, which supports free voice lessons and mentorship for under-resourced students in San José. Click HERE for more info on what we hope to accomplish together in our community.
