The 19th Annual Christmas Spectacular

December 07, 2019

Saturday, December 7th 6:00-8:30 pm

Everett Civic Auditorium

The Christmas Spectacular arose in response to the reported food bank shortages in the wake of 9-11.  Down through the years, the show has continued to highlight the need for food donations - and to recognize the importance of "helping those less fortunate than ourselves".  The Christmas Spectacular continues to host outstanding musical entertainment.  Through the Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem and God Bless America, our event constantly brings about the awareness that only because of our hard won freedom, do we have the opportunity to be a "Celebration of Life in Our Community over the Holidays".

Megan is delighted to be performing the role of Violetta in La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi for Vashon Opera at the beautiful Vashon Center for the Arts.

Verdi's passionate portrait of the worldly courtesan, Violetta Valery, forced by bourgeois society to give up the man of her dreams remains an irresistible classic. This timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice is a milestone in opera history, sure to melt even the coldest heart.

The Parting

May 19, 2019

Saturday, May 19th 7:30 pm

Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall- Benaroya Hall
200 University St.
Seattle, WA 98101

 

Megan is delighted to be *understudying soprano, Laura Strickling, in The Parting, a new chamber opera by composer Tom Cipullo and librettist David Mason and commissioned by Music of Remembrance.   As an understudy Megan will not be performing on May 19th, but highly recommends buying tickets to experience and support this beautiful new work. 

In The Parting, it’s May 19, 1944 – the final evening at home for the great Hungarian poet Miklós Radnóti and his beautiful, devoted wife Fanni.  Foreseeing his likely fate in a forced labor camp, Radnóti wonders as we often do why we are given life: “To learn what love is. To live. To make beautiful things. To die.” Facing these stark illuminations brings a bright awareness of being.  The Parting is a profound and musically rich meditation on what it means to be an artist but also desire ordinary happiness.
