Upcoming Show:

Opera Unzipped – Saturday, April 15, 7:30 p.m.

When you hear the word “opera” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Stuffy? Boring? Elitist? Prepare to have your preconceptions blown away! Join us on April 15th and rediscover opera as the popular music it has always been.

Featuring members of Seattle’s own Opera on Tap – Seattle. No formal clothes please!

Opera on Tap (OOT) was born in 2005, at Freddys Bar and Backroom in Brooklyn, and incorporated in 2007 to promote opera as a viable, living and progressive art form and to support the developing artists who continue to keep the art form alive. What began as a small monthly gathering of ambitious, classically trained singers looking for more performance opportunities, has grown into a producing organization that has gained a loyal audience base and national recognition as an innovative force on the classical music scene. Through its Chapter program, which now has sixteen vibrant national chapters, OOT has created a large network of performers, creators, and supporters.

Past Shows:

Dream Lovers – Saturday, March 18, 7:30 p.m.

There was a time when popular music was made for the whole family. Songs like Mack The Knife, Beyond The Sea, Dream Lover, Splish Splash, Sincerely and Sugartime ruled the airwaves. On March 18th we’ll celebrate the unforgettable music of Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra and the McGuire Sisters.

Please join Bob DeDea, David Duvall, Kim Maguire, Meg McLynn and Caitlin Frances for this nostalgic evening of music. It’s sure to be an extraordinary night!

Love’s Mystery – Saturday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m.

In some ways, love is the ultimate mystery. When we love we are at our strongest, and also our most vulnerable. On February 18th we will explore the many faces of love – from the mundane to the sublime.

Through the songs of the Great American Songbook, and the verses of beloved modern poets, we will shine a light on Longing, Laughter, Loss and Learning – illuminating the meaning of love in our lives.

Please join Ronald Stilwell (voice), Kathy Roche-Zujko (voice), and John Chmaj (piano), for this exquisite evening of music and poetry. Bring your loved ones!

 

The Rhythm of Life – Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Life is rhythm. Feel your breathing. Listen to your heartbeat. Watch the changing of the seasons. Your life is a song unfolding in time. Join us on January 21st for the opening concert of East Shore LIVE’s 2017 season – a celebration of rhythm, dance and music.

Featuring dance company Alchemy Tap Project and singer/songwriter Jan Jaffe, this unique and dynamic duet for dance and music will fill you with joy!
