Summer Concert Series

WBAA & Delphi Opera House are partnering to bring a Summer Concert Series.

There will be three featured events (Classical, Folk, and Jazz) at the Delphi Opera House.  We are currently finalizing the talent for these concerts – but want you to “Save the Date!”

Concerts will be held:

June 2: Classical Concert with Elinor Frey

There's always room for cello! Join host John Clare for a live radio performance with special guest Elinor Frey. Hear insights about 500 years of classical music for the cello, from Fiore to Frey's own transcriptions and commissions. Elinor has a new cello by Karl Dennis on which she'll play new and old works. Meet Elinor Frey and find out the latest about this rising star!
