In this edition, host George Cady focuses on the upcoming concert of April 3, 2016, to be given by up-and-coming opera stars Anton Belov and Hannah Penn. The varied program will take us from Mozart to Broadway, with music by Rachmaninoff, Britten, and de Falla, and selections from Kismet, Kiss Me Kate, South Pacific, Showboat, and Man of La Mancha.

Both artists currently reside in the Portland area and have performed at prestigious venues across the United States..
