SAN DIEGO OPERA GALA
SWING AND BLING...
how the night unfolded....
The new San Diego Opera now in its second year proved the mission to provide vocal performances to diverse audiences.
With that in mind the San Diego Opera held its evening of Swing and Bling at the McMillin Event Center at Liberty Station.
The non-black tie required resonated with fun and exception vocal performances provided by fave local and internationally acclaimed Sacha Boutros and Soprano Cherylyn Larson.
Among the mix in appropriate bling were Claire Reiss, Courtney Coyle and Steven McDonald, Richard and Lynda Kerr, Abeer and George Hage, Stephanie and Robert Horsman, Martha and Ed Dennis, Joyce Gattas, Teresa and Harry Hixson, ....oh yes!!

"Swing and Bling was the first of what will be our yearly 'Celebration' to acknowledge and raise awareness and funds for our beloved San Diego Opera.
This diverse art form incorporates all the arts, the magic of Symphony, lyrical literature, poetry, the visual arts, dance, stunning stage sets and lastly the breathtaking ability of the trained human voice to transport us to that rare place where we are, for a brief moment in time, in tune with the Universe." - Honored Guest, Sarah B. Marsh-Rebelo
