MassOpera Announces ‘Valentine’s Day Songs and Shout-Outs’

By Nicolas Quiroga

MassOpera has announced a live virtual concert entitled “Valentine’s Day Songs and Shout-Outs” scheduled for Feb. 14, 2021.

The showcase will feature a number of guest artists including soprano Maggie Finnegan, baritone Junhan Choi, soprano Melissa Joseph, mezzo-soprano Tahanee Alwiharey and soprano Emily Siar.

Donors can sponsor an Aria for $250 from each singer’s songlist with a special dedication to the donor’s loved one. Donors can also submit a 100-word shout-out, which the sponsored singer will read before his or her respective performance.

Audiences are also encouraged to “Donate-what-you-can” and submit a 30 word or less shoutout to be read during the concert.

The performance will be made available later for audiences to check out in the case they cannot watch it live. The show is produced by Daniel P. Ryan, William Amneelly and Carla Maniscalco-Giovinco and hosted by Dan Ryan.
