We will close out the year in style with the traditional Holiday Celebration – The Cosima Wagner Birthday/Holiday Celebration.
We will meet for a fabulous luncheon, music, revelry and our customary drawing for valuable prizes.
Details are being organized, but we urge you to mark your calendar for this annual holiday celebration. The Wagner Society has much to celebrate this year.
We are thrilled to announce our musical guest artists for the Cosima Celebration.
Our accompanist is Dennis Doubin, Music Staff San Francisco Opera, and former participant in both the Merola and Adler Fellowship programs of the San Francisco Opera.
Our vocalist is Eugene Richards III, bass baritone. Richards has spent the last three years studying with dramatic soprano, Luana DeVol and the past three summers as part of Dolora Zajick’s Institute for Young Dramatic Voices in Reno, NV, in the American Wagner Project division. In 2017 this study of Wagner led to his being selected as 1 of 16 finalists in the Lauritz Melchior International Vocal Competition in Aalborg, Denmark. Richards participated in The Miami Music Festival in their Wagner program where he covered Alan Held as Wotan in Die Walküre & sang King Heinrich in Lohengrin. Richards sang the role of Wotan in the Vegas City Ring Production.
