Congratulations to everyone involved with the highly successful run of Opera Chapman’s “2012: An Opera Odyssey – The Journey Continues”.  Prior to Friday evening’s sold-out performance, Dean Dale Merrill and Liz Crozer, Director of Development, hosted a reception for donors and were especially grateful to have the support of the Orange County Opera Patrons, who ensured that the reception was a great way for friends of the opera to share their passion.  Congratulations to all of the student performers and the Conservatory of Music faculty members who made it happen:  Associate Professor Peter Atherton, Artistic Director of Opera Chapman; Artist-in-Residence Carol Neblett, Associate Director; Adjunct Professor David Alt, Assistant Director; Adjunct Professor Cheryl Lin Fielding, Music Director; and Adjunct Professor Janet Kao, Principal Coach. 

Save the dates April 19-21, 2013, as plans are already under way for a major full-length production of
The Merry Widow
by Franz Lehár in the spring!
