Young oper­atic phe­noms: Santa Fe Opera Ap­pren­tices

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Singers in the com­pet­i­tive Santa Fe Opera Ap­pren­tice Program come from as close by as Texas and as far away as Korea. Ap­prox­i­mately 40 aspir­ing stars have spent the sum­mer hon­ing their crafts and ex­pand­ing their lung ca­pac­i­ties in the rar­efied moun­tain air of Te­suque — prac­tic­ing for hours on end and even per­form­ing on­stage in the sea­son’s big­gest pro­duc­tions. Now these ex­cep­tion­ally ta­lented young peo­ple bring high art to the streets in a free Band­stand con­cert on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 1, at 6:30 p.m. on the Plaza. Pan-Latin singer and band­leader Nacha Men­dez plays at 7:45. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit santafeband­stand .org. — J.L.
