Opera in the Heights will present Bravissimo! 2016 – An Emerald Evening, the nonprofit organization’s major fundraiser of the year. This year’s event celebrates Oh!’s 20th season and honors the extensive contributions of Josie and Fred Nevill to Opera in the Heights over the past nine years. The emcee for the event is Houston Public Media’s St. John Flynn, who serves as Houston Public Media's Arts & Culture Director, and is an ardent supporter of classical music and opera.

Other Oh! board members planning “Bravissimo!” include Josh Agrons, Bo Eagles, Marianne Terrell, Dan Mathena and Will Speer. In addition to an elegant seated dinner and the presentation of the honorees, the evening will include special performances from some of Oh!’s most talented emerging artists. Some of the exciting live auction items for the gala include trips to a fully-staffed villa in Acapulco, Mexico; La Posada Resort in Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Red Willow Lodge in Big Fork, Montana; in addition to a gourmet dinner for six with Maestro Eiki Isomura and a collection of fine wines to stock a wine cellar.
