1. Opera Mixer: An Evening of Opera Delights (Thursday and Friday 7th & 8th July)

Fellow Penn alums, I'd like to invite you to an event by Opera Viva (, a non-profit on whose Board I sit, and for whom I'm producing a soirée on July 7th and 8th. Would love to see some fellow Red & Blues there!

***Special deal for Penn alums on the 8th of July (Friday) - enter code LOCUSTWALK for a 10% discount*** Get your tickets soon - there's just 2 more days for Early Bird pricing $40 (Regular Price: $50 starting July 1) ***

Opera Viva presents Opera Mixer: An Evening of Opera Delights.Is it a concert? Is it a social event? Or is it both? Come find out at Opera Viva’s intimate music salon. Set in an intimate gallery space at the historical Old Parliament House, you will mix and mingle with some of Singapore’s up-and-coming artists over wine and light refreshments while they perform some of their favourite repertoire. We’ll hear stories about the delightful world of opera from the artists themselves. Whether you’re new to opera or an enthusiast, there’s something in it for you.

Featuring artists Charmaine Tan (soprano), Leslie Tay (tenor), Alvin Tan (baritone), Pauline Lee (piano), and hosted by Melissa Chan (Board Member, Singer,
