Celebrate a special occasion or just celebrate gathering together to enjoy an exclusive, live opera concert just for you. You’ll experience the unique intimacy of music performed in a small and personal setting—your home, your garden, or if you’d prefer, in the private home of a Merola board member in either San Francisco or West Marin.
No piano? No problem! Our portable electric piano will come to you.
Included in your one-of-a-kind event are wine and hors d’oeuvres, to easily make your perfect private party complete!
