Kristen is first joined by David Levy, Vice President of Artistic Operations for Opera Philadelphia to talk about the 3rd Annual Opera Festival, O19! Festival O19 brings 12 days of opera to Philadelphia from September 18th-29th. Be there as Opera Philadelphia debuts its daring new opera, Denis & Katya at The Suzanne Roberts Theatre. See The Love for Three Oranges at the Academy of Music, Semele at the Perelman Theater, Let Me Die at FringeArts, Curtis in Concert at the Curtis Institute of Music, and so much more. This year, Opera on the Mall kicks off the festival on Saturday, September 14th with La boheme right on the grass of Independence National Historic Park. Opera on the Mall is FREE to the public, but registration is encouraged. Register and learn about all 12 days of Opera at Operaphila.org or call 215-732-8400. 

Then, Jess Ames, Outreach and Events Director for Angel Flight East, joins Kristen in studio with one of Angel Flight East’s volunteer pilots, Andrew Morrison. The mission of Angel Flight East is to provide free air transportation to qualified patients and their families by arranging flights to distant medical facilities, delivering supplies to disaster areas, and reuniting families during desperate times. Join Angel Flight East at their Wings N’ Wheels event on Saturday, September 7th from 11am-4pm at Wing Field (1501 Narcissa Road. Blue Bell, PA 19422). The event has vintage and antique cars AND aircraft – plus flight demonstrations, food, music, kids activities, crafts and airplane rides! Learn more here – https://angelflighteast.org/

Finally, Tonya Guy, Associate Director of Communications for Canine Partners for Life joins Kristen in studio (along with Hunts, the service dog) to talk about their upcoming Open House and COW BINGO at their location in Chester County (334 Faggs Manor Rd. Cochranville, PA 19330). The event is FREE – Saturday, September 14th from noon to 4pm with wine and beer, food trucks, a puppy kissing booth, and COW BINGO – a game of chance that pits your luck against the cow “doo”ing her business.
