UNF students to premiere unique virtual Opera Gala

Members of the UNF Opera performing on stage wearing face masksThe UNF Opera Ensemble will premiere the first-ever UNF Opera Gala virtually at 7 p.m. tonight, Friday, Oct. 30. The Gala will feature UNF opera students performing various scenes and selections from the great opera choruses, as well as arias performed by the winners of the first-ever UNF Opera Gala Aria Competition.

In order to keep everyone safe during the pandemic, the student performers had to adapt to singing from behind the confines of a mask and the production team was creative with the design, stage setting and filming. Watch the brilliant performance, staged and conducted by UNF Opera Program Director Dr. John Daugherty, via the School of Music's YouTube channel.
