Join us for a special performance by renowned opera star Frederica von Stade to celebrate the Saint Mary's partnership with St. Martin de Porres Elementary School in West Oakland. The concert features music by the great mezzo-soprano von Stade and accompaniment by the Saint Mary's College Chamber Singers and the young musicians who make up the St. Martin de Porres violinists, plus several guest artists.
Von Stade, known by her friends and St. Martin's students as "Flicka," is a longtime resident of Alameda who adopted the school as a volunteer calling. As a member of the board, she has focused on the music and arts education of the students at St. Martin de Porres. Saint Mary's College supports this special concert because of the Catholic social justice partnership with St. Martin de Porres and SMC students.
