SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A North Park soprano singer took her talents to her porch for neighbors during the stay-at-home order.

Victoria Robertson gave neighbors a show Sunday, performing four songs from her balcony to onlookers. Video showed the gathering on the street below, with most people wearing masks and social distancing, as Robertson sings "Quando m'en vo" from Puccini's opera "La Bohème."

The songs are part of what Robertson calls her "Separate But Together" concert series. Since Easter, she has performed various concerts from her porch for neighbors.


Robertson started her musical career in San Diego, singing for the San Diego Opera chorus for 12 years, as a soloist for the San Diego Symphony and La Jolla Symphony, and on her own.

She's also performed for the USO as Miss USO, San Diego, and in several other performances around the world.

Robertson's performances echo the creative ways San Diegans staying at home are finding ways to connect with neighbors. Downtown, residents cheer nightly for health care workers. Two local San Diegans have also been hosting happy hour concerts on social media.

Robertson's performances can be seen on her YouTube channel here and she asks any who wants to make a donation for her performances to Venmo her at @v_sings.
