WCO announces return of Opera Outside and roster of performers

We're back! Get ready for the Second Annual Opera Outside, once again jointly presented by Washington Concert Opera and Washington Parks and People!

Join us for a casual outdoor concert on the upper field of Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park, featuring selections from WCO's upcoming season, along with other operatic and musical theater favorites. Performers will include local tenor, Joshua Blue (tenor), Maria Valdes (soprano), and David Hanlon on the piano. 

Blue is currently a Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist with Washington National Opera and was a semi-finalist in the 2018 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Hailing from Georgia, Valdes was an Adler Fellow at San Francisco Opera with many notable performances there, as well as in Houston and Atlanta. 

This event is FREE and open to all ages. Come and go as you please, and come as you are. Bring your children and pets! Bring a blanket and/or chairs so you can enjoy the music in comfort!

Plan on joining us? Don't forget to stop by our table near the Joan of Arc statue on the day of the concert and say hello! You can also register to win free tickets to our 2018-19 season online (concertopera.org/outside) or in-person at the event!
