Da Flutes! Alyce Johnson (Flute/Piccolo) and Mimi Tachouet (Principal)
After 18 months away, we are thrilled to be back, performing again at our beloved opera house.
The Sept. 17 opening night of Verdi’s Macbeth marked the beginning of Maestro Enrique Mazzola’s tenure as Music Director. Playing together again was magical and the performance brought smiles to our faces (even behind masks) and the audience to its feet.
Please enjoy a few photos from that evening and join us in rejoicing at the start of a new season of opera.
