The holidays are upon us once more, and that means it’s go time for singers all over the country and the world. With this post we’re bringing you and yours a (non-exhaustive) brief list of some of the performances happening this month where Seagle singers can be heard in a variety of productions, holiday-themed or not. If you’re looking for a last-minute gift – consider the gift of an experience and support all these hardworking musicians by attending a live performance! In a time when the world feels darker (both figuratively and literally… the sun sets at 5:00PM every day here on the East Coast!), music has a wonderful way of soothing, unifying, and restoring. Do yourself a favor and get to a theater, church, symphony hall. Even if you don’t see something near you it on this list, chances are lots of great music is being made right in your neighborhood.

DEC 9, 23, 25; JAN 19 // Un ballo in maschera (Verdi)
Theater am Goetheplatz, Bremen, Germany
Stephen Clark ’12-’13 will sing the role of Sam in Verdi’s classic opera. Not exactly your typical holiday fare, but the opera IS about a party, so…if you find yourself in Deutschland on Christmas day, give this opera a try!
DEC 12-13 // Lucinda y la Flores de la Nochebuena (Mack)
San Francisco Opera, San Francisco, CA
Seagle board member, composer, and friend Evan Mack collaborates once more with San Francisco Opera to bring his holiday children’s opera to Bay Area youth. The piece explores the story of “how the poinsettia became a meaningful symbol of the holiday season.”
