Ed Tapper presents 

Great Singers Around Boston,
An Historical Survey, Part 2

Boston Opera House

Noted Boston-based lecturer Ed Tapper returns to the New England Opera Club in January with a continuation of last October's program: Great Singers Around Boston, An Historical Survey, Part 2. The audio presentation will focus on renowned opera singers who were born and trained in the Boston area, as well as singers born elsewhere who made Boston their adopted home, spending the bulk of their careers entertaining local audiences. Some visited briefly, but became immensely popular here, while others stayed on to teach voice at area schools and conservatories, passing on their art to future generations.

Open to the Public - Free

The New England Opera Club's founder
moves off-stage

William David (Bill) Miranda, 83 years of age, passed away on Saturday December 23, 2017 after a long illness. Bill was the cherished husband of Maria Iantosca, and is also survived by his loved daughter Margaret (Megan) Miranda, and his brother and sister-in-law, Daniel and Marguerite Miranda.

Bill's passion was for opera, which he taught for 52 years. The New England Opera Club, which he founded in the 1970s, will miss him!
