Dear friends of Syracuse Opera!!!!!
This is the “3 day countdown “ to our July 4th event !
I am so excited to present today the longest “ Coffee With the Artists” ever made!!!!
All this made possible by our generous friends of WCNY who came out for the morning and professionally shot, recorded and edited this edition of CWTA, I am so honored and grateful!
We are joined today in historic Fayette park by 3 of the outstanding Gospel Quartet you can see and hear in our film of “No Cowards in our Band”
Sonya Hines, Sandra Dee Miller and Pastor Phil Turner are a delight ! As usual we talk about everything and all!

Set in current-day New York, this filmed opera reimagines La bohème by glorifying rooftops, mattresses, and the grungy, sexy, dirty world of being in your early twenties in the city that never sleeps. This work focuses specifically on Asian, Asian-American, and BIPOC youth and their experiences, creating a poignant subplot of immigration, assimilation, and racism.
“Coffee With The Artists” brings you spontaneous, informal chitchat with the creatives who bring opera to life. It takes place in whatever setting is available before, after, between, or even during rehearsals! The brainchild of Syracuse Opera’s very own Alexandra Deshorties, the series is designed to be a fun little forum to bring our Facebook opera friends into the day-to-day life of a performer. Stay tuned as we talk about how opera intersects with life and– well, just about everything!
A vibrant community of people who love opera, the Aria Society is dedicated to providing support and resources for Syracuse Opera, nurturing talented young singers, and engaging our community with the beauty and wonder of opera.
