Catch a Rising Star!

Now in its fourth year, Catch a Rising Star! brings together eight to ten of the best young singers in the world to perform in Abilene on Tuesday, August 28, at 7:30pm at the beautiful, historic Paramount Theatre in Abilene, Texas.  Members of the Houston Grand Opera Studio will sing pieces from famous and well-loved operas in addition to other popular music, including a few musical theatre selections. 

The event benefits Young Audiences of Abilene, an organization that has provided performances and residencies to the schools in Abilene and the surrounding area for the past nineteen years. 

The concert is being underwritten by H. R. Stasney and Sons and the Dian Graves Owen Foundation.  Both of the sponsoring organizations specifically want the concert to be open to the public so that anyone who wants to attend may do so.  The concert provides the opportunity to hear some outstanding vocalists in addition to learning about the Houston Grand Opera Studio and Young Audiences of Abilene. 

Patron opportunities are available for those who wish to attend a post-concert reception at the Center for Contemporary Arts, reserve priority seating, and be recognized in the program by supporting Young Audiences of Abilene.  Please contact Dr. Victoria Spangler at Abilene Cultural Affairs Council at 325- 677-1161.

There is no admission fee, and reservations are not necessary.
