Henry Phipps, a Woodside resident and a seventh-grader at Nueva School in Hillsborough, has a night job. For three more evenings —and one afternoon — in September, he will perform a significant singing role in "Heart of a Soldier," a San Francisco Opera world-premiere production based on a true story of an Englishman who died in the collapse of the World Trade Center after leading 2,700 people to safety.

Henry Phipps! what a guy! Congratulations. I am a 75 yr.old opera nut, and I loved your story. Many opera stars have beginnings similar to yours so keep singing and you just might have a career that you love and also takes you all over the world. What a first role! To be in a production with Thomas Hampson... to die for!!!
My best wishes to you for a productivew and joyful life.
