Heart of a Soldier: Honoring Strength Through Song with James Stewart and the SF Opera

James B. Stewart, Author, Heart of a Soldier; Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist
David Gockley, General Director, San Francisco Opera
Christopher Theofanidis, Composer, "Heart of a Soldier"
Gil Gross, Award-winning Radio Journalist; Weekday Talk Host, KGO Newstalk 810 - Moderator

A bold new opera tackling the 9/11 tragedy is headed to San Francisco. We first heard the extraordinary story of Rick Rescorla, a military veteran who led hundreds to safety in the 9/11 WTC attacks, in Stewart’s 2002 book, Heart of a Soldier. Now, Rescorla’s heroism lives on in the San Francisco Opera’s commemorative production of the same name. Hear about the project’s goals and challenges from journalist Stewart, opera director Gockley and other collaborators. They will discuss the creative process leading to this inspiring new production.

Location: SF Club Office
Time: 5:30 p.m. networking reception, 6 p.m. program
Cost: $20 standard, $12 members, $7 students (with valid ID)
Also know: Underwritten by The Bernard Osher Foundation
