Musical showcase: Opera Cowgirls
Musical showcase: Opera Cowgirls
Since they performed for the first time in 2011, the Opera Cowgirls have performed all over New York and traveled the country performing their unique blend of opera, country and rock 'n' roll, helping to open the eyes of a new generation to the greatness of opera, "the ultimate retro"... This ain't your Grandma's dusty Puccini LPs, my friends!

Caitlin McKechney (mezzo and guitarist), Meagan Brus (soprano and accordion player), Sarah Beckham-Turner (soprano) and Mila Henry (piano) are serving up music that is truly unique, blending styles in a way that reinvents the operatic artform. Able to go from sultry and sexy to comic hilarity, the Opera Cowgirls are not just a musical experience but a fantastic evening of entertainment, convincing audiences all over that opera is really... REALLY cool!

The Cowgirls have performed at (le) Poisson Rouge, the LIC Bar, Bar 4 and many other venues in NYC. They have also performed at fundraisers for opera companies including Cedar Rapids Opera and Nightblue Theater.
