June 20: Pandemic Reflection Concert
Arts United Plaza (303 E Main Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46802), 4 p.m.
Heartland Sings Vocal Artists bring our community a concert to reflect on the weight, growth, loss, and love experienced during this past year.
The Mozart Requiem (a tribute to those lost), along with choral selections of unity and hope, will be performed outdoors.
Though it's a small inconvenience compared to many of the hardships people around the world are facing due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many of Elaina's upcoming engagements have been cancelled or postponed. She will continue to update her schedule here as changes are announced, and hopes that everyone stays healthy and finds ways to keep engaged!
Elaina is the founder and co-managing diva of Fort Wayne's brand new chapter of Opera on Tap! Opera on Tap is a nonprofit organization with chapters all over the world. The Fort Wayne chapter will be hosting free performances once a month starting in 2020. To get updates about upcoming events, follow us on Facebook.

With gratitude and affection, Elaina has left her position as a Principal Vocal Artist at Heartland Sings after over three years of exhilarating experiences.
