THE STAR GATHERER featuring the Varsity Choir
While mourning the loss of his young son, Mega the Baker finds himself burdened with the challenging responsibility of carrying on an important tradition for the other young boys in the fictional town Bevravia. Mega must find a star to bake in a cake – a cake which gives magical powers to one lucky boy. When Mega discovers that he has failed at his task, the boys discover their remarkable abilities to help lift him out of his distressed state. With libretto by Grammy-nominated Gene Scheer, The Star Gatherer was written by Grammy-winning composer Stephen Paulus for SJBC in 2006.
JUNIOR VARSITY CHOIR
OperaWorks will also feature the Junior Varsity Choir performing selections from opera choruses for children’s voices. Operas include Xerxes, Hansel and Gretel, and Carmen.
