Our Signature Salon “Welcome” on July 14 will star Ibidunni Ojikutu. Born in Bellingham, Washington, Ms. Ojikutu is a frequent performer around the Pacific Northwest and will be especially familiar to our Seattle Opera goers. Her program highlights her lilting soprano voice offering a combination of popular opera, gospel and musical theater. A special guest will join her for a couple songs, our newly graduated scholarship recipient, Raine Filbert. We are very proud of Raine for graduating from the University of Puget Sound and being accepted to the Manhattan School of Music for graduate school. The Garden Reception is paired with a tour of the on-site studio of artist Judith Kindler.
