Celebrating 10 years of music making, Bay Area Rainbow Symphony (BARS) will mark this milestone with a gala concert featuring renowned soprano and San Francisco favorite, Patricia Racette, who has appeared in the most acclaimed opera houses of the world. Professionally, she came out as a lesbian in the cover article of Opera News in 2002 and makes her primary home in Santa Fe with her wife, mezzo-soprano Beth Clayton. While best known for her extensive work in opera, Patricia’s first love was jazz and cabaret, to which she returned in her album Diva on Detour. With BARS, she will revisit that first love with selections ranging from Jerome Kern to the most beloved tunes of Edith Piaf. Please join us for this anniversary celebration not to be missed!

A portion of the proceeds of this concert will benefit the Trevor Project.
