The music seems to have been saved.
In a press release sent to SN&R yesterday morning, the Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera (an alliance self-described as “Two In Tune”) announced “Art Invasion 2015,” a seven-week series of pop-up performances by SacPhil and Opera musicians. These planned Art Invasion performances—of which there will supposedly be “dozens”—will range from a Philharmonic concert celebrating the grand re-opening of the group, to experimental music ensembles showing up for performances around the city in “museums, clubs, and public spaces.”
All these events will be free, except for a performance by the Opera Chorus with Andrea Bocelli in a concert in June. They’ll be announced on the SacPhil & Opera Facebook page and the inaugural Invasion will be on May 5, coinciding with the Sacramento-area BIG Day of Giving nonprofit fundraising drive.
Also, on the week of April 26, the group will announce the “2015-16 Resurrection Subscription Season,” which will be a 10-concert season starting in June. Stay tuned for more details once that announcement’s been made.
Both the Sacramento Philharmonic and the Opera had been struggling financially for years before they merged in 2013. Even after that, the merged group went through a yearlong absence from performing until two April 10 performances at the Community Center Theater.
