Jun 12, 2015 04:14PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

This year, Marriott Opera in the Park features a special Father's Day Tribute to Dads, in addition to a Community Fair  and a special treat — a demonstration of Indian "Bollywood" dance to help set the mood for this fall's presentation of two Indian-themed chamber operas.

Mark your calendar now for a late-afternoon/early evening concert of favorite arias and ensembles. Bring a blanket and enjoy a family-friendly outing as featured artists Daniel CilliJose Hernandezand Shawnette Sulker perform some of the world's finest music, with special emphasis on Dad. Longtime Festival Opera favorite John Kendall Bailey will conduct and guide the audience on a musical journey.

Civic Park is located in downtown Walnut Creek at the corner of Civic Drive and Broadway, next to the main library; free parking is available off Civic. The program begins at 3:00 p.m., so arrive early to stake out a good spot. Chairs, blankets, coolers, non-alcoholic beverages and food are all welcome, but please note that no alcohol or glass is permitted in city parks.
