Opera Invasion Grand Finale

The event plan: Each Young Artist will start at a different place on the grounds at 7:15pm, singing opera at the top of their lungs. As they walk toward Bestor Plaza, they will meet up with some of their fellow artists to form duets, trios, and quartets. Five groups will then arrive in Bestor Plaza at 7:30pm, where Steven Osgood will lead the artists and community in a sing-a-long from 7:30-7:45pm.

There are several ways you can enjoy the Opera Invasion Grand Finale!

You could pick your favorite Young Artist to follow from their starting point all the way to Bestor Plaza.

You could wait at a convergence point and follow the duet or quartet from that point.

Or you could wait at Bestor Plaza for all of the artists to converge at 7:30pm.
