Opera in the Heights (Oh!) kicks off its 20th anniversary season with Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci (The Clowns) on Sept. 18, one of several inspired works in the company’s 2015 -2016 repertoire. I Pagliacci runs Sept. 18, 24 and 26 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 20 at 2 p.m. and is an enduring tale of jealousy and rage between lovers in a comedy troupe. Art imitates life with fatal results in this iconic tragedy, featuring the famous tenor aria, Vesti la giubba (“Put on the costume”). To create additional excitement for the new season, on Sept. 10 Oh! will host Overture!, a fund raiser/cocktail reception from 6 – 8 p.m. at Tommie Vaughn Ford, 1201 N. Shepherd Dr., which is open to members of the community, with tickets starting at $40. (Funds will help support Opera in the Heights community programs.) Guests will mingle with Oh! conductor Eiki Isomura, take in performances by some of the company’s rising stars and enjoy beverages and appetizers."I am giddy with excitement, as we have assembled an absolute dream cast for I Pagliacci,” says Oh! conductor Eiki Isomura. “It's a remarkable privilege working with such fine artists, and especially with stage director Susan Stone Li, whom I consider to be a visionary.” “Audiences will also be pleased to find how prominently the piece features our extraordinary orchestra and chorus,” Isomura continues. “This promises to be something truly special, a powerhouse production worthy of opening the company's 20th anniversary season." “We hope our subscribers, YOLO (Young Opera Lovers Organization) members and the public will join us for Overture! to experience a taste of what’s in store forsays Mariam Khalili, Opera in the Heights’ Executive Director. “Oh! is known for supporting the careers of emerging artists, such as the ones you will see at our event. Even those who are not familiar with opera should come away with an appreciation for great art and a feel for what this season,” we do. It’s also a chance to meet other opera lovers.” The next Oh! production is a Menotti double bill, sung in English: The Telephone and The Medium. The opener is the light one-act comedy, The Telephone, in which a man comes to his girlfriend's apartment to propose, only to find her preoccupied with chatting on the telephone. The Medium presents the haunting tale of a spiritual con artist whose life begins to unravel when the powers she purports to wield become all too real. Performance dates are Oct. 30, Nov. 5 and Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 1 at 2 p.m.Rossini’s La Cenerentola is Oh!’s late winter production and is perfect for the entire family. Rossini's take on the classic fairy tale, Cinderella, the opera La Cenerentola is considered to be one of his greatest achievements, complete with mistaken identities, stepsisters and of course, romance. Performance dates are Feb. 5, 11 and 13 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 7 at 2 p.m. The season closes with Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, which is based on the myth of Orpheus, a legendary ancient Greek hero endowed with superhuman musical abilities, and his love, Eurydice. The opera takes to the stage on Apr. 8, 14 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. and on Apr. 10 at 2 p.m. Single tickets prices are $35 - $67 for regular tickets, $32 - $58 for seniors and $15 - $17 for student tickets in limited seating areas.

Spring Branch Education Foundation: same great mission, cool new look
As parents and students were updating back-to-school wardrobes, Spring Branch Education Foundation
was also rolling out a new look. To celebrate its third successful decade of partnering with Spring Branch ISD,
the Foundation unveiled a new logo.
“Same mission, new look,” says Lisa Schwartz, chair, SBEF Board of Directors. “The Foundation is committed to funding programs and scholarships that lead to the success of every SBISD student. Since 1993, we have donated almost $9 million to the district. That’s a lot of grants and scholarships. Our new logo reflAects our progress.”
Debra Aitken, marketing chair for SBEF’s board describes the new design as “fresher and cleaner. The logo is reminiscent of a bar graph that demonstrates our continued growth. Thanks to dedicated board members, community volunteers and staff, every year we award more grants and scholarships than the year before. We’re not slowing down. We continue to move forward, providing new opportunities and programs to support our students and teachers.” In the last school year, SBEF awarded $916,049 in campus and district-wide grants for education-enhancing programs and $118,000 in scholarships to 89 graduates. Every dollar donated to the Foundation remains in the district. This year, SBEF will raise funds in five signature events: Style Show and Luncheon, Oct. 9; Masquerade Ball, Nov. 21; Sporting Clay Tournament, Feb. 16; Golf Classic, Apr. 3; and Running for the Arts, Apr. 30. All donations are tax-deductible and can be designated for specific district-wide or campus projects. Donations may be made online at springbranchisd.com/sbef.
The Foundation collaborated with Random Sky, a Houston-based
branding and design firm, to create the logo.
