THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT
WITH UNCSA ALUM RICHARD OLLARSABA
December 19th in Winston-Salem
When Mexican-American bass-baritone, Richard Ollarsaba called Executive Director Connie Quinn to accept her invitation to headline our in-home Holiday Concert, the staff cheered. (Well, Connie squealed, but who could blame her?)
Richard was praised by The Washington Post for his “meltingly smooth bass-baritone” and for “evoking a young Ruggero Raimondi in looks and manner”, represented the USA in the 2019 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, was a member of the prestigious Ryan Opera Center at Lyric Opera of Chicago for three seasons, and a grand finalist in the 2013 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
This is event is on December 19th in Winston-Salem and includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, Raffaldini wine and entertainment. It is an incredible opportunity to meet Richard who is a fast-rising star in the world of opera and a product of Winston-Salem!
This is a sponsored project of the Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County and funded through ARPA supported by the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners.
