I’m not a singer. I sing, but I’m not a singer. Trust me on this one. But I just might be in an opera. Singing. Time will tell. It’s all up to me.

I read this (and now you will too):

Cellphonia: San Jose

What’s happening: Artists and cell phone users will work together to create an opera about San Jose. Using RSS feeds from mercurynews.com, artists Stephen Bull, Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Tim Perkis will put together the framework of an opera. Callers from the 408 area code will complete the work by singing.

How to get involved: Go to http://cellphone.el.net/listen/ for instructions. Once you choose the part you want to sing and get the phone number, the RSS feeds the lyrics to your cell phone. After each section of lyrics, there will be a karaoke-style cue for you to sing the lyrics into your phone. The opera will be played continuously at the entrance of the South Hall addition of the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, 435 S. Market St.

When: Aug. 7-13

So there you go. Or there I go. Or there we all go. Whatever.

Wanna join me in an opera?
