Music in the Mountains Orchestra

Celebrate love with special guest, Russian opera diva, Katya Smirnoff-Skyy and the Music in the Mountains Orchestra.

katyaThe Countess Katya Smirnoff-Skyy has enthralled Bay area audiences for years with her unique blend of opera pop and booze. With a career spanning …a very, very long time…..Katya claims to have invented Popera, romanced William Shatner, and lived next to John Lennon at the Dakota during her stint in New York City during the 1970’s. Once Eastern Europe’s greatest Mezzo-Soprano…understudy, the Countess now spends her days beautifying the masses at Macy’s Department store, as everyone’s favorite Chanel counter lady. She spends her evenings crooning and drinking her away through the finer theaters, bars and bath houses of America.
