Saturday on Stage and Serenata for June

Saturday on Stage presents what I blithely call "Opera and More" every Saturday at 1:30 Classical 101. The program is preceded by Serenata at 1 p.m. , which centers on the art song. Music for solo voice-usually-with solo piano-usually. As you will see, there's lots of room to maneuver! Here is the schedule for both programs for June.
