Austin Opera is set to present an All-Star Concert which will be presented in mid-February via the company’s official channels. The gala will eventually make its way to PBS in the Spring of 2021.

The showcase will feature mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, Bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green, tenor Chad Shelton, and soprano Sara Gartland. Timothy Myers, in his first performance as the company’s Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor, will lead the Austin Opera Orchestra.

“We are so impressed with the creativity and ingenuity of Austin Opera in navigating the issues this pandemic has imposed upon the arts. The opportunity for Austin Opera to be showcased on Austin PBS, allowing the whole community and beyond to enjoy this star-studded concert, is thrilling and we are happy to support it,” stated supporters Nancy and Neil Schaffels in an official press release.

The event will be filmed by Subvrsive.
