California State University, Sacramento (Sacramento, CA)

Four Corners Ensemble is excited to announce our third season of Operation Opera, a unique initiative that invites composers, vocalists, and pianists to Sacramento, and centers around the performance and workshopping of contemporary operas and art songs.

Performances will include premieres of art songs and semi-staged settings of selected operas in Sacramento State's Capistrano Hall, where vocal and piano participants will perform alongside members of the

Four Corners Ensemble

We are excited to offer programs for composers, vocalists, and collaborative pianists this season!
