In Honor & Memory of beloved

Barbara Bliss Mestre
Board Chair Emerita


Barbara Bliss Mestre was a champion of
new opera-music theatre and was
dedicated to creating opportunities
for singers and composers.

Her distinguished service as a member
of the Encompass Board of Trustees and
as co-Chair Emerita, gave a vibrant presence to the artistic life of Encompass for
more than 17 years.

Her experience as an international opera singer and voice teacher gave her an important and vital perspective which she brought to everything she did at Encompass. She was a cherished friend and mentor, and we are deeply grateful for her wise and loving guidance all through the years. We will miss her greatly.

Encompass is gratefully accepting donations in honor of
Barbara Bliss Mestre for development of new opera and singers.
