Opera San José Announces ARIAS IN THE OFFICE for Silicon Valley Employees

Opera San José announces that it is launching a new corporate concert series called Arias in the Office. This is a fun and easy concert experience tailored to the active, creative companies in Silicon Valley. These concerts will feature professional singers from Opera San José's resident company who will perform operatic arias and ensembles to engage, inspire, and introduce the art form to Silicon Valley employees.

Opera San José will provide singers and an accompanist, for 40-minute concerts designed to pop-up on any corporate campus location. These sponsored concerts are provided at no cost to the company and require little set-up time. Opera San José will also provide the company with preview materials that can be disseminated to staff announcing the concert along with information about Opera San José.

Arias in the Office officially kicks off on August 1st with a concert at Adobe, followed by a concert at Oracle on August 2 and another at Nvidia on August 3. Opera San José will also take Arias in the Office to Cisco, Applied Materials, SmartMod, and other Silicon Valley companies in September.

"I am very excited about the Arias in the Office program," said Development Director Aaron Nicholson. "Breaking down the imagined barrier between opera and the community is crucial, and taking opera into to the

workplaces of those who make up the heart of industry here can only help engage audiences and foster an appreciation for the art form to which we are so dedicated at Opera San Jose. I believe that opera and creative expression are core to our quality of life and bringing them to the workplace is a natural result of that belief."

The singers performing at Arias in the Office will include principal artists in Opera San José's resident company including soprano Amanda Kingston, soprano Katherine Gunnink, tenor Mason Gates, tenor Dane Suarez and baritone Trevor Neal.
