This Month's Featured Artists

Kyle Stegall     Nikki Einfeld         Eric Zivian

The first concert of the 2020 - 2021 season was to have been in September featuring two exciting singers who are graduates of the San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera program.

Nikki Einfeld, Canadian coloratura soprano has been lauded for her “high-flying virtuosity” (New York Times) and her "blazing intensity and ferocious artistry (San Francisco Chronicle). She was a Grand Finalist in the 2006 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and she has performed on operatic and concert stages throughout the US and Canada.

Kyle Stegall’s performances around the world have been met with accolades for his “blemish-free production” (Sydney Morning Herald), “lovely tone and ardent expression” (New York Times), and “lively and empathetic delivery” (San Francisco Classical Voice).

They were scheduled to perform in Brookings, Oregon with pianist Eric Zivian, “the last word in low-key virtuosity” (San Francisco Classical Voice), and a popular two-time veteran of Friends of Music performances. After you watch these excerpts, you’ll be glad to know that they have agreed to perform in Brookings as soon as we are past the Covid-19 restrictions.
