Opera Memphis Needs You: Pick Places For Pop-Up Opera Performances
(Can you say that headline three times fast?)
Opera Memphis hosts one of my favorite Memphis events every year in September: 30 Days of Opera. And we need to your help to make 2018 the best year ever.
How can you help? Tell us where Opera Memphis should pop-up this year. Cool locations or events are great suggestions, anywhere they can draw a crowd with an operatic performance. Read on for details.
If you’ve missed it in the past, 30 Days of Opera is a very Memphis way to enjoy (or get to know) our city’s opera company. Singers pop-up around town – sometimes several different times a day, or several places at once – and treat passersby to a short performance. There’s usually at least one pop-up a day, from September 1 – September 30.
They already have 30 Days of Opera shows planned at Germantown Festival (Sept. 8), Cooper Young Fest (Sept. 15), South Main Trolley Night (Sept. 28), plus a special performance at the Levitt Shell on September 23. Check out the schedule so far here.
Here’s what we need from you: leave me a comment with a suggestion for a unique place or event where the Opera Memphis team can pop-up this year. If they can’t do it this year, maybe next year.
What’s a cool place where a crowd will gather to witness 3o Days of Opera?
Be sure to follow them online for info on where you can see opera (for free!) this September.
