Merolini Mixer


#MeroliniMixer "Libiamo" from Verdi's La traviata

As a message of thanks for the Merola Artists Emergency Fund and all that Merola does for young artists, some alumni created the Merolini Mixer. Here's what they had to say:

"The Merola Opera Program has changed many artists' lives in more ways than we can count, and we as Merolini want to give back. The hope behind Merolini Mixer is two-fold: to continue to practice the craft we so dearly love and to express our sincere gratitude for the Merola Artists Emergency Fund - which has allowed so many of us artists to find a source of stability in these otherwise uncertain times."
