College Light Opera Company
Returning this season, CLOC's Alumni Concert Series at the Cape Cod Museum of Art! This year we are excited to welcome back Alexa Devlin (Vocal Company ‘10-’11) who most recently graced the Highfield stage last summer as a part of the 50th Anniversary Jubilee Gala. Her favorite roles during her time at CLOC include Katisha (The Mikado), Sally Adams (Call Me Madam), Ruth Sherwood (Wonderful Town), and Ruth (The Pirates of Penzance). Alexa has been a resident artist at the Ohio Light Opera for six seasons, where she was seen as Adelaide (Guys and Dolls), Babe Williams (The Pajama Game), Annie Oakley (Annie Get Your Gun), Reno Sweeney (Anything Goes), Buttercup (H.M.S. Pinafore), Pinkie Peach (Primrose), Violet Hildegarde (Fifty Million Frenchmen), Fanny Welch (Oh, Lady! Lady!!), and many more- including two reprises as Katisha and one as Mrs. Sally Adams. Now based in New York, Alexa is a member of the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players, the Victor Herbert Renaissance Project Live, and she has been a soloist for the Lotos Foundation. Joining Alexa for the Alumni Concert is pianist Matthew Stephens.
Matthew Stephens (Associate Conductor '12) Matthew is thrilled to be back in Cape Cod.
