Opera Idaho’s annual summer benefit “In Good Taste” was held on July 23 & 25 at Cinder Winery. Attendees enjoyed a gourmet meal by Wild Plum Events with wine pairings from Cinder and an incredible performance of Service Provider, a one-act opera by Christopher Weiss & John de los Santos, featuring Opera Idaho Resident Company singers Michele & Jason Detwiler, Jena Carpenter and Jonathan Hill.
Other activities included a dessert auction and an opportunity to support Opera Idaho’s Emerging Artists and Education Outreach programs. The event was a wonderful success, raising over $20,000 in net revenue for Opera Idaho’s Emerging Artists and Education Outreach programs.
