Opera in the Park returned to Italian Lake on Sunday August 19th, 2018 at 4 PM. This program was free to the public, but we would gladly accept donations which would go toward our come back, mainstage production, other events and other pending community programs. We were thrilled to make this event, which is a favorite for Harrisburgers, our inaugural concert marking the come back for our organization. Over 100 people, 50 Canada Geese four swans, two Mallards and a Great Egret were in attendance. A standing ovation and kudos from the audience members followed our concert and continues to resonate throughout our community! For an archive of past concerts click here. Stay tuned as we announce more events, fundraisers, educational and therapeutic programs in 2019 and beyond. Kind Regards - Tami Swartz, Executive Director and Artistic Director
