Four Andover Students Performing in Opera at Harvard University
The Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras, comprised of four Andover teens, will be performing a semi-staged opera on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 3 p.m. at the Sanders Theatre at Harvard University.
The Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras will bring to life one of opera’s most compelling characters, Rigoletto, for a one-time-only performance of Verdi’s renowned Rigoletto.
And four young Andover musicians are among those performing in the upcoming show at Harvard University.
Andover teens Tiffany Lam, Miki Nagahara, Mari Nagahara and Sasha Scolnik-Brower will be performing in the string ensemble for this one-time show.
Tiffany Lam, 17, will be playing the viola, Miki Nagahara, also 17, will play the violin. Mari Nagahara, 13, and Sasha Scolnik-Brower, 17, are both performing on the cello.
The semi-staged opera will take place on Sunday, Jan. 20, at 3 p.m. at the Sanders Theatre at Harvard University, 45 Quincy St., Cambridge.
This is the sixth consecutive year that BYSO presents a full, semi-staged opera performance and is the only US youth orchestra to do so. After last year’s sold out performance of Verdi’s Falstaff, BYSO will present a Verdi opera for the third time. This semi-staged production will be sung in Italian with English supertitles.
Tickets start at only $30 and discounted student and senior tickets are available; call Sanders Theatre Box Office at (617) 496-2222. Free parking is available at the Broadway Garage on Felton Street.
