Since its inception in 2010, Rising Stars of Opera has featured vocal artistry, stirring arias and a glimpse at the opera stars of tomorrow; and every ticket has been free to the public thanks to Barbara K. Jackson. This year’s concert is being held on the Centennial of Barbara’s birth. Seven wonderful young singers, whom Barbara sponsored as Adler Fellows, are joining us to honor her life, her memory and her generosity. Barbara loved opera best of all music and these singers will perform a wide range of great arias in recital and with full orchestral accompaniment from our own UC Davis Symphony Orchestra.
