Patrick Bell: The World’s Only Opera-Singing Magician!

The Bell Family regrets to inform anyone visiting this page that Patrick died on 6/20/20 at age 42.  Please feel free to listen to the music and watch the videos…in fact, please do and appreciate the too-short life of Patrick Bell and his gift. 

We should have had some inkling of what was to lie ahead in our lives when one of the first comments made to us after Patrick popped out at 1:38 AM, October 28, 1977 was “…Wow, that kid has a set of lungs!”

We made no more of that until he was a high school freshman.  The school musical was going to be produced and he decided on his own that he wanted the lead male role.  Checking with his then piano teacher, who suddenly turned into his voice coach, he was told “…Patrick, you’ll get this.  You have a range of over an octave and no other boys will want to sing in public anyhow.”  It went from there to his glorious, mature baritone which you’ve all heard and that has stirred literally thousands.

Sadly, his voice is stilled, taken from us too soon by a genetic defect never previously detected.  Thanks to the internet though, that voice will live on until his webpage is taken down, which I don’t see happening soon.

Patrick was his own man, made his own decisions and lived his life the way he wanted to with no regrets.  He was starting another adventure with a new business idea when he was taken.  But things have changed and to paraphrase Peter Pan, “Patrick is off on his awfully big adventure” and we can’t watch this one except in spirit.  His sister and we are devastated of course but he’ll live on in our hearts until we die as well.

So Godspeed little buddy, and we’ll see you again sometime.  

Oh, and Patrick, we almost forgot… demand first chair in your section, wherever the choir is located.  You shouldn’t need an audition at all to be accepted…

“OPERA and MAGIC collide with spectacular results in this one-of-a-kind show as classical opera arias are artfully ornamented with visual magic. Baritone Patrick Bell sings the beautiful arias that you already know and love, or will soon fall in love with, as he performs amazing magic that illustrates the story of the character, affect of the music, and meaning of the text…”

Opera-Kadabra excites and inspires the minds of opera lovers, and has converted more than a few adults into opera fans as well!

Here’s a cool video a friend of mine took of me doing the dollar bill trick:

Patrick Bell has performed for our residents at The Birches at Newtown on two occasions. I had the pleasure of seeing his most recent performance, this past Monday, July 9th. Mr. Bell arrived with ample time to set up, and interact in a warm, friendly, and charming demeanor, with staff and residents upon his arrival. Mr. Bell’s show is engaging, clever, funny, and definitely magical! His combination of magic tricks, and knack for spontaneously interjecting some jokes, inviting audience participation, along with his powerful operatic vocal performance had our residents and staff mesmerized from start to finish. Mr. Bell is a consummate professional and it is clearly evident that he enjoys entertaining and making people laugh and just plain feel good. We look forward to having Mr. Bell return to The Birches at Newtown in the very near future for yet another amazing performance! Without hesitation, I recommend Mr. Bell, and his Opera-Kadabra, to anyone who may be looking to be entertained in the truest sense of the word!

My January calendar for St. George Village in Roswell, Georgia was already printed and packed with events and entertainment when Patrick Bell telephoned me. He sent me his promotional flyer and guaranteed we would love his show. It caught my attention being so unique and original. I am so glad we booked his talents as an opera singer/magician. He is very charismatic and received a standing ovation, which I don’t ever recall happening at our community. My residents were thanking me for days afterwards and asking me to book him again again!

I was impressed with Patrick from the time I read his first e-mail. It was very professional and caught my eye immediately. Opera and Magic, how impressive! We touched bases a couple of times before his performance and on that day he truly captured his audience; myself included. I feel honored to have a performer of this caliber entertain our residents and we are all looking forward to having him come back again. I would very highly recommend Patrick to others; they will not be disappointed.

Patrick just performed at Kingsway Senior Housing in Norwalk, CT. His show is amazing! He has such a vibrant voice, when he comes near you when he is singing you can actually feel his voice. The magic tricks are unbelievable, leaving you wondering “how did he do that?” He is certainly a showman, he interacts with the audience and makes you feel like you are a part of his show. PLEASE, IF YOU GET BACK TO CT, COME ENTERTAIN US AGAIN. Thank you so very much for a wonderful afternoon.

Patrick Bell performed on Friday, July 28, 2017 at the Baptist Homes in Mount Lebanon, PA. Patrick’s performance was phenomenal and one of the best, if not the best! He engaged the audience and talked to each one of the residents after the performance. The residents and families members were thrilled with his performance and requested to have him back. It was like afternoon at the Opera House combined with Vegas Magic Show

“We had Patrick for our Assisted Living Week on September 14, 2017. Our Residents enjoyed his performance very much, saying, “He was the Best Entertainment we have had. The magic was fun and his singing was tremendous”. Oakwood ResidenceAssisted Living

Patrick – you are welcome back to Rosegate any time! Your voice is truly a gift – add that to the fact that you are so personable and entertaining……..and a gentleman! – the evening couldn’t be beat! You related to our residents so well – and they were beyond thrilled with your performance. I have had one person after another come up to me today to talk about it. One resident told me I had outdone myself as far as entertainers go – I told her I had very little to do with it! THEY LOVED YOU! For other directors, or anyone for that matter – don’t hesitate to book Patrick! He’s one of a kind!

Patrick was very engaging, and funny. He’s definitely worth seeing. My residents enjoyed it so much. He’s one of a kind.

Thank you so very much Patrick for your outstanding performance at Marian Assisted Living on Sunday, June 18th 2017. The residents and guests were enchanted by your wonderful singing, your amazing feats of magic and your splendid sense of humor. You were so kind and considerate, engaging everyone in the audience and remembering names. The songs you chose were perfect as so many residents knew them by heart and were happy to participate. The whole performance was truly uplifting; a real joy. Please come again soon! The residents were talking about you for days afterwards. You clearly have so many gifts and one of those is to make people happy. Bless you.

Patrick was phenomenal! A one of a kind performance. Our residents gave a standing ovation, not once, but twice. His voice is like magic alone, but then add in the real magic and his show is outstanding! Bravo! We want him back again and again! God bless this man and his God given talent. We was also very kind and courteous to our residents. They adored him!

This is the second time Patrick performed for our Huntington Beach Newcomers Club, and we weren’t disappointed. His singing voice was as vibrant and full as we all remembered a year ago. Added to that was his awesome magic tricks. We will invite him back again! Working with Patrick was a breeze. I had a few special requests and “no problem”. He was punctual and very professional. Thanks Patrick!

Awesome. What a talent. Patrick’s singing is amazing. He has such a sweet comedic personality. Ben, my husband was chosen to help with an act. He was stunned at the surprise ending, even though he held the card during most of the act. This was part of a delightful performance at The Valley of the Flowers United Church of Christ in Lompoc, CA.

I saw Patrick the first time when he was the evening entertainment at a state retired teacher’s conference. He charmed us all!His magic is secondary to his wonderful voice and easy chatter with the audience.I have now seen his act four times…he has performed twice for a local group of retired teachers.On May 14 he performed for a fund raiser at my church to a standing ovation.Patrick is prompt to reply to requests for performing dates and shows up promptly. He stays after the show to interact with the audience which has been appreciated.I highly recommend his show. I could watch him again!

World Class entertainment! Book it now as your keynote performance. This jewel of a entertainer will delight any audience beyond their and your wildest imagination and expectation into the the realm of magic intertwined with a gifted operatic voice. All I related to my Lions convention group is that our show for the night would be a surprise. Within the first minutes they were fully captivated by a beautiful voice and rolling in laughter with the comedic antics and mesmerized by the magical displays. Your life will not be complete until you have witnessed first hand Patrick Bell’s inspired creation of Opera-Kadabra. He is an artistic treasure you won’t want to miss.

I heard about Patrick from a friend of a friend who had seen him entertain at another event. She highly recommended Patrick as the best show her group had experienced, and Patrick did not disappoint! He was prompt with all correspondence and his arrival on the day of our program. His mastery of magic, combined with a lovely operatic baritone, was only surpassed by his comedic wit and ability to connect with and entertain all ages! I hope to be able to have Patrick at future events!

When a member of our Church mentioned he had seen Patrick perform at a Rotary meeting we were intrigued. Then we visited Patrick’s website and were convinced we needed him to perform at our Church. We were not disappointed! It is becoming increasingly difficult to find entertainment that is suitable for all ages, young and adult. Even more difficult to find entertainment that keeps everyone in their seats and glued to the performer. Patrick accomplished both! From his singing, to his selection of helpers from the audience, to audience sing a long, he was endearing to all. Then the finale! Of course this program was the talk of the Church for weeks afterward. We’re already planning to have Patrick come back for another performance. Thank you, Patrick, for combining your two incredible talents, magic and voice, into grand entertainment.

“Wow!” “Bravo!” “Fantastic!” “Mesmerizing!” “What fun!” These are only a few of the comments I heard from members and guests when Patrick Bell entertained at our Greater Whittier Area American Association of University Women holiday program. Patrick enthralled us with his rich baritone voice. He befuddled us with his magic. He charmed us with his wit and comedic banter. Then, he took requests from the audience and regaled us with our favorite songs (we even sang along). What a joyful way to start the holiday season! I highly recommend Patrick for your program or party at any season of the year.

It was such a pleasure to have Patrick perform at our Holiday Party last Friday (December 4th, 2015). He is a true Magician! I have had nothing but fabulous reviews from all in attendance. If you want to have a great party with lots of fun, I would highly recommend Patrick to entertain you and your guests! You will be very happy with his entertainment. And, he is such a great guy. This was the best party we have had for over 12 years. Thank you Patrick!

Wow! Patrick just performed for our CalRTA Division 81 in Fallbrook. He is super talented vocally and in his magic tricks. So glad to have had this artist entertain us. His voice is super. What a talented young man…

I first saw Patrick Bell at a Trojan Guild luncheon and fell in love with his performance. For my husband’s 80th birthday I invited him to our annual Labor Day end of summer block party where he performed for our neighbors and friends. His voice is beautiful, his magic is fun and his sense of humor just adds that special touch. My neighbors all had a great time especially the couple that hooked him into his straight jacket. I would highly recommend him.

Patrick Bell was a sensational hit for our fall party. Our group has a diverse age range and tastes and everyone was delighted and enthralled by his performance. One of our members had seen Patrick perform and instantly wanted to see if we could get him for our party. He was responsive and got right back to us and couldn’t have been more accommodating to our requests. He is professional, fun and a true joy to coordinate with and our guests are still talking about what a unique performance he gave for us. Patrick has a special talent in his ability to read an audience and tailor his routine to the crowd. Patrick gets our highest praise and if you are lucky to get him, you will be so happy you did. He is a total gem.

I first met Patrick at the Placentia Round Table Women’s Club and as I sat there, listened and watched Patrick I was so entertained. First such an amazing voice and then you add the element of magic, it was truly an amazing afternoon. I had to bring Patrick to our Senior’s Ministry at Crossroads and your voice just filled the room. I keep hearing that this was the best luncheon they had ever had all due to Patrick. Thank you Patrick, it was so easy working with you and I look forward to having you back for our entire congregation to enjoy!

I first saw Patrick perform at the Patrons of Italian Culture’s Christmas Party a couple of years ago. For my and my twin’s 80th birthday party, I decided to invite Patrick to perform for my friends and family. Opera-Kadabra is a great entertainment and is sure to give the audience a great time. Patrick is a very talented young man, he’s also very punctual, patient and easy going. I would certainly recommend his show! Thank you Patrick for giving us all an amazing time!

Patrick Bell has performed for the Placentia Round Table Women’s Club for the past 2 years. We first heard of Patrick through a flyer we had received. The magic was great and the voice even better. He geared his program to our club member’s wants and needs. He also included everyone into his program. He left us with a smile and a song – definitely wanting more. We would highly recommend him to all who love the 2 m’s – magic and music.Thanks for a job well done! Nancy

All of our attendees thought OPERA-KADABRA was the best program we have had at our HARA General Meetings. He is very professional and knows how to work the audience. We will definitely book him again for a future program. Thanks for a special show!!

Tustin Library loves you! You’re a professional performer who knows how to handle any audience! Thanks for sharing your musical talents, the magic, and the comedy. 🙂

It is with great pleasure to give Patrick a Testimonial for his outstanding performance at the Upland Women’s Club. He has given two great performances in the past two years and yes we would let any one know he is a great performer! When he sings you love it and when he does his magic tricks we love that too! So from the Upland Woman’s Club to you “Patrick Bell” we give you three cheers for sure!!! Best of luck from your friends at the Upland Woman’s Club. Sincerely, Dorothy Ackerman & Christine Newell, 3rd Vice Presidents

Patrick Bell is the most talented and charming man I have ever had the pleasure of listening to and totally enjoyed looking at. He is so professional and witty but when he opens his mouth, it’s like diamonds flowing into a beautiful pond with Pelicans all around. Thank you, Patrick for gracing us with your being. It is our pleasure to have you in our home. Susan Seacrest Village

Patrick has performed for me on 4 separate occasions, each time better than the last. At every performance everyone always raves about how wonderful his voice is, how great his personality is, and how amazing his opera and magic skills are. I can not praise Patrick enough.

An enthusiastic “Thank You!” to Patrick for your marvelously entertaining performance at our church’s afternoon tea luncheon. When deciding upon entertainment, Patrick was the perfect choice for this event. The ladies are still commenting how much fun they had enjoying Patrick’s show.Appreciate the professional and friendly ladies who do Patrick’s reservations, too.Wish we had another event just to have Patrick perform again!

Patrick Bell performed at our annual Friendship Dinner in April. What a great performance! This is the second time I have seen him perform and he is just as good the second time as the first time. He engages the audience and picks assistants from the crowd. This was good for the age range of our group and everyone loved him! He is a great singer as well and will “WOW” you with his voice. Great entertainer and very personable! BRAVO!

I saw Patrick at a Downey Symphony fund raiser and thought he would be great for our AAUW fund raiser we hold every year. I was thrilled I could get him on the date we wanted. I knew everyone would love him and they did! Not only was he enjoyable but the audience got in the spirit of things and added to the enjoyment. The only problem. How do we top this next year? I don’t think we can. Everyone loved it!

Patrick is wonderful! Our residents at Harbor Terrace cannot get enough of him, they still talk about his performance and request his return for months after he performs! Thank you Patrick for always providing an amazing show 🙂 -Sharon Meyer, Activity Director at Harbor Terrace Retirement Community

We have used Patrick for two years as the “best entertainment ever” for our annual St Patricks Day program for seniors and their friends and family. I wish I could of had a video running of the childrens and adults awe of his magic tricks, and the smiles and love for his opera voice along with the tears that flowed for some emotional holiday and Broadway tunes. He is an incredible talent and blessing!

Patrick Bell is an amazing singer and very popular with the residents at Seacrest Village (especially the ladies)!

Patrick, you were wonderful. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening. You are a FIRST CLASS ACT. You made our Christmas gathering magical. You shared your beautiful God given talents and transported everyone to a magical operatic journey. BRAVO! Everyone had a blast and commented that they are hoping to do it again next Christmas. HUMMM perhaps the start of new tradition?

Patrick-Thank you for bringing talent, excitement and fun to us here at The Towers! You were FANTASTIC and everyone is still talking about you, a month later! Thanks again and we look forward to having you back again soon!

Hi Patrick,We just saw you at the Optimists meeting and LOVED your personality, your voice and your magic.Thank you so much. You are such a supreme talent!!Susie

Over the past 5 years Patrick Bell has performed to the delight of our residents..His performances have been voted the best of all the 62 monthly professional performers that have entertained us here at Walnut village. With his booming voice and charisma, he hasinspired and connected to us like no other entertainer. He is absolutely the best!!!.

Patrick Bell is amazing and truly entertaining! I had seen Patrick perform at a women’s luncheon earlier this year and had such a good time. He has the most beautiful voice and can definitely keep the audience engaged. So naturally when I had my 40th birthday party earlier this month I wanted him to perform. I wasn’t sure how everyone was going to react to an opera-magician since I had different types of friends and relatives there, but everyone LOVED him. He had us laughing uncontrollably and we were in awe of his singing. My in-laws plan a lot of parties and they thought he was so amazing they took his information for their upcoming events. He showed up on time and was very professional. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to entertain a group or party. We will be booking him again!

Our Senior Retirement Community enjoyed Patrick’s performance immensely. His voice is fantastic and his choice of music really made the residents smile. He was engaging and offered a very polished and professional show. A class act! We have enjoyed him several times in the past and will continue to do so! P.Ward, Westmont Town Court, Escondido, CA

Patrick Bell gave a very enlightened and entertaining program to members of the Torrance Woman’s Club. He explains the purpose of his opera singing, which is beautiful. He has a great program that we all enjoyed. We were thrilled with his talents and interaction with our club members. Thank you Patrick Bell, we hope to schedule you again in the future.

Thank you so much for making our Mesa Verde Christmas Guys and Dolls Golf Tournament a great event . You were the icing on the tee (tree) !! So many people complimented the event and the entertainment, saying it was the best we had in a long time. Thank you so much again .. Mrs. Bunnell

I had seen Patrick perform for the first time last Christmas at an event that my business, Ritz Catering, was providing the service for. As a music grad myself, I was stunned at how good his performance was and his “slight of hand” was the equal to any I have EVER seen. Including the number of times I have been to the Magic Castle. So I hired him myself for an event that Ritz Catering was serving last Sept. 19th in Newport Beach. It was for an up and coming in-home fashion business called Honey And Lace. Talk about “slight of hand”. He had all those guests in the palm of his hand. When he first started, they were not sure what to expect. In about 2 minutes, they were excited and clapping. So add me to the list of those who would not hesitate to recommend Opera Kadabra for any fun event.

Patrick what can I say? You have done it again!!! Your command of the audience and your voice are true talents! Thank you for tailoring your presentation to tie in with our Italian Renaissance Theme and a special thank you for singing “Bring Him Home” from Les Mis per my request. I have gone to your website and played it a couple of times already tonight. My residents left the party excited and wanting to know when we are having you back. I will be in touch. Thank You again and I am grateful that you came and shared your talents with us!

Thanks Patrick for another great event! Your magic and music were as always, fantastic! I appreciate the way you reach ALL ages in our audience….from the 3 year olds to the 95 year olds! We didn’t want the evening to end! Thanks again! Cindy

The ladies of the Grand Terrace Woman’s Club were thoroughly entetained by Patrick Bell of Operakadabra at our Christmas Luncheon. He was prompt and prepared. We laughed and applauded at his interaction with some of the members and enjoyed his beautiful singing voice on a wide selection of opera, broadway, and holiday songs. The finale was a real showstopper! I highly recommend having Patrick perform for your event….. you will be glad you did! Nancy Hassard, program co-chair, G.T.W.C.

OMG! What an awesome show! Our summer camp kids really enjoyed this very unique blend of talents! Patrick was so good with our kids too. I appreciated his patience and sense of humor. He needs to add comedian to the list of talents he has! 🙂 This was our 2nd time having him come out and we are going to be sure to book him every year from now on! Bravo!Ms. Kim Day Camp Director Town & Country Day Camp

I first saw Patrick’s show at the Glendora Woman’s Club and then had him perform for the Montebello Lions Club, our Lions’ District Convention and then for the state meeting for all Lions in June, 2014.Each show was excellent and the audience “loved” him. After the state meeting, they commented about his show for days, and even the other day, another “over the top” comment on his performance and amazing voice.He was the hit of each event, and his show is always fresh and outstanding!

September 13, 2014 we celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary and chose “Patrick Bell” – Opera-Kadabra for our entertainment. We were very pleased with his performance of magic while singing opera. He has an extensive musical background and did a full program of beautiful music and Magic. We would highly recommend him and some of our guests are interested in having him for their events. He made our 50th a real success. Thanks Patrick!!

I asked Patrick Bell to perform at our Club Christmas luncheon and I received so many positive comments. One lady said it was the best time she had had in months. Patrick has such a beautiful voice and incorporated Christmas music for the occasion. Everyone was mesmerized by his magic. All wondering how did he do that. Any one wishing to book him will be greatly pleased. Patrick thank you for making our Holidays magic.

Patrick performed at the San Juan Capistrano Woman’s Club a few weeks ago. All the ladies loved him and we plan on having him back next year. HE WAS GREAT AND VERY NICE….

Thank you, Patrick, for a very enjoyable performance at our recent anniversary party. We have received many compliments from our 3 generations of family and friends. We especially appreciated your willingness to sing favorite operatic arias and light opera songs. All are still wondering how you did the fun rope tricks.Sincerely, The Bejach family

We absolutely loved the Show. Patrick was so engaging – from our youngest guests -ages 9 to our seniors – 65+. The Show is fast paced and offers audience participation. It was a real hit. Women of Temple Bat Yahm, Newport Beach, CA

His performance was above and beyond. All my guests love loved Patrick! He was entertaining, his singing is magnificent. His sense of humor is absolutely marvelous, he made my party. I first saw him at a large show of 300 people and he was absolutely incredible. My party was only 12 women and big or small he really does the job right.I will use him again and I hope you enjoy using him.

Patrick Bell is as charming as he is talented. Our residents thoroughly enjoy his performances and are always delighted to see him! They love his energy, how personable he is, his talent, and how professional he never fails to be. Working with him is a delight and we will always be sure to have him back!

I had previously seen Patrick Bell several times here in Laguna Woods Village and totally enjoyed his performance. I recently hired him for our Golf Club Holiday Luncheon and he did not disappoint us! He was on time, totally gracious, and completely enthralled and entertained the women with his beautiful voice and close up magic. I would happily recommend him to anyone!Aloha Saxon, Women’s 9 Hole Golf ClubLaguna Woods Village

The group’s experience was great!The Senior Friends have been able to enjoy him twice; once in June of 2011 and again in March of 2013. I know that when I announced Patrick’s return performance to the seniors they became excited to see him and hear his voice again.He has a wonderful way of interacting with the group and getting them involved with his tricks. They also marvel at how he brings his singing talent into his magic. I remember the laughter that came out of the program.I would definitely recommend him and his program to others.Your Sister in Christ,Jopie Vander MeerProgram Coordinator for NLCC Senior Friends

Hello Patrick,I type this as I listen and watch your strait jacket escape. Excellent! Thank you so much for saying hello last night at the Castle. It has been a long time and it was so good to see you and meet your friends and adopted family. It certainly made my evening. I am going to try to get back every year if the Castle will have me and they have availability. Lets keep in touch and next time I am in town lets do lunch.

Patrick entertained at our church function. He combines opera and magic in a very unique way. His voice is amazing. The group loved his program.

The Friday Morning Club of San Pedro ( Seniors) have enjoyed you for 4 going on 5 years. The ladies love you – tall & handsome, your voice, and your magic! The men in the group are all envious of your charming good looks and your magic. Each year the demand for a repeat performance is overwhelming from the Board. You are one of a kind act that satisfies the ear as well as the eye. We all want to know how you do your magic. Every member goes home with a smile and saying what a rich baritone voice you have and great showmanship. I would recommend your show to any club that wants an outstanding show!

Patrick performed at our 2013 Orange District Convention and was an over-whelming success! I am very pleased that we contracted him to present our program. Also, it was a pleasure to do business with him. It was simple–he’s efficient, punctual, upfront and sincere. A very, very talented gentlemen with an extremely adaptable program. He’ll tailor it to whatever you want. I recommended Patrick to all of our 23 clubs and my own club (FVWC) contracted him for the club’s 50th anniversary in June 2014. Patrick is a great magician and a fabulous singer!!!

We hired Patrick to entertain us for our Annual Computer Club dinner. The balance between Opera and Magic was very entertaining and was very well received by all our guests. Thank you

Patrick, What a pleasure it was to have you as our entertainment at the Council of Catholic Women’s annual Conference. Everyone was in love with your voice, really what a pleasure to hear you sing! Of course your Comedy was great fun also. Everyone in attendance said this was the best Conference we have had in some time. I did pass your information on to several people who were interested in engaging you to perform for their Organizations. I am happy to hear that you have a C.D. available, let me know where I can purchase it. Bravo!!

While vice-president of the Leisure Village Players’ Guild, I engaged Patrick on two occasions for our annual ‘professional’ entertainment meeting. His combination of a manificent singing voice, extensive repertoire, and delightfully humorous magic skills makes him a truly entertaining and memorable performer. I recommend him highly.

Patrick,Our audience was, as you know, certainly not composed of opera aficionados. Despite that, your performance was a highlight of the evening and our year of events. Everybody loved the music and the magic as well as the humor that accompanied it. I would highly recommend you to almost any organization as their evening entertainment. Your act was magical.

Patrick Bell is a wonderful performer! I first saw him at a Los Angeles Philharmonic Committee event. I have seen him at other parties as well. I enjoyed him so much, I hired him to perform at a party at my house. He was prompt, professional in every way and is extremely entertaining!!!I highly recommend him to anyone!!! His performance is great for a mixed audience of opera lovers and non opera lovers. Between his magic tricks and opera, there is something for everyone. He’s wonderful!!!!!!

Patrick Bell has been performing at our assisted living home, Summerhill Villa, for many years and is always the highlight. Our residents love him, not only because he has an amazing voice, but also because the songs he sings are from their era. His magic tricks are enchanting, and combined with the opera, make for a memorable performance. Five stars from us!

I first heard about about Patrick from a mailer. We enjoyed his initial performance so much we have continued to have him as a regular performer for a couple of years now. Patrick kicked off the season at Regents Point with a festive holiday sing along that was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Our residents love him, his voice, his magic, and the way he engages the audience is fantastic. Patrick is very professional and a lot of fun, I highly recommend him.

I first saw Patrick last October at an Optimist quarterly. I knew then our district would enjoy his performance and booked him for our Optimist annual convention. Patrick is professional from start to finish. He works well with the audience and changes up the show by their responses. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun and talented entertainer.

Truly one of the most entertaining evenings I have ever had. We had an evening with 200 people for a charity fundraiser and they all were amazed by Patrick. If you do not go to an event where he is entertaining then you better host an event and hire him to be there. The magic is amazing and the singing is even better. How does he get out of the straightjacket and still hit all the notes of his songs???

Patrick is a superb magician who is so personal and charming with a fabulous voice. He had us all laughing in the aisles with his straightjacket trick. A show that should not be missed by anyone. Our group highly recommends him.

Can not stress enough how much we love Patrick! His romantic, gorgeous voice makes our Valentines day every year. It is why we continue to have him year after year. My term ends in December and I will for sure be passing Patrick’s info on to whomever takes over for me. Patrick is always first on our list to have perform at our functions. Fantastic!

All the best comments you’ll read on this site about Opera-Kadabra are true. We recently had a party for about 80 people of mixed ages, and Patrick Bell kept us all spellbound from start to finish.

The Opera League of Los Angeles was so impressed with the talent and versatility of Opera-Kadabra that we invited Patrick to return for a second engagement.

Wow! Patrick Bell knows how to really put on quite a show! We invited Patrick to perform for our 50+ Luncheon. One of our seniors referred him from another luncheon she had attended and raved about his performance. We were told that he sang opera, was a magician, and was very funny. Patrick’s show included all of these talents and more. Our folks are really excited to have Patrick Bell return in October to share this delightful experience with all of their friends. We love this guy!

Patrick Bell has performed twice for our parish. What a joy to have him share his talent as a magician and his love of music with our parish families. Patrick captivates children and adults with his magic and singing of opera. A parish favorite. We would definitely bring him back again.

Patrick is a true professional both on and off the stage. His magic tricks accompanied by absolutely marvelous vocal arias and songs, were such a hit, the Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club asked him for a return engagement. He involves the audience in both the magic and his glorious signing.

I have hired Patrick of Opera-Kadabra for four different occasions in my community. Each time Patrick “Wow’d” the audience with his magic and his singing. In fact it may be time to hire him again since I now have some new audiences. The kid is great!

What an unusual combination of talents comes with a performance by Patrick Bell – a beautiful baritone voice, incredible, magical fetes and stand-up comedy!Patrick first entertained us at Love INC’s Angel Fund Thank-You Dinner in a private home in 2013. Everyone in attendance loved him and requested he provide the entertainment at our Annual Dinner in March of this year – which he did.He was a total hit with our guests aged 6-90. There were nothing but laughs and admiration throughout his performance. We loved how he interacted with the audience and roamed around the large room making a more personal connection with everyone.Patrick was a total professional. He promptly returned phone calls, arrived with all the equipment he needed and was ready to go within 10 minutes, planned his program to accommodate our time schedule and even sent a thank you note. I totally recommend Opera Kadabra and Patrick Bell if you desire an extraordinary performer for your next event. Tamra Tomlin Love INC South Bay President

Opera-Kadabra is a one-of-a-kind entertainment show! Patrick Bell is amazing! He brought our group (CalRTA – Division 69) to its feet with his beautiful baritone voice, amazing feats of magic, and his humor and wit! It’s an unbeatable combination! Opera-Kadabra was such a hit, that we booked Patrick to come back again, much to the delight of our members. I HIGHLY recommend Opera-Kadabra for any occasion. He is sure to please everyone. Thank you, Patrick, for putting a smile on everyone’s face. We can’t wait to see you again!

We needed entertainment for the City of La Verne at our Volunteer Recognition Luncheon. Because our volunteers are very important to us, we seek out great entertainment. Patrick was referred to us by Scott Snider at Hillcrest Homes-he said Patrick was the fan favorite over there.We could not have been more pleased! Patrick was funny, so talented and extremely entertaining-what a great voice. It is such a different kind of act, that is refreshing and something that all of our volunteers and staff remember with joy. Patrick was extremely professional and made hiring him easy. The City of La Verne would recommend Patrick to anyone who is looking for a GREAT show…what a treat!

Hello Patrick: We can not say enough about your performance. Our residents at Beach Homes Senior Care in Costa Mesa LOVE your show. They really look forward to your performance and even invite their friends and family to join in. It is an amazing indescribable combination of music, magic, humor and wit that keeps our residents engaged and laughing throughout. Thank you so much for continuing to find the time to visit and perform for us. We already look forward to the next performance! Most Sincerely, Trish Beach

Patrick Bell has been bringing his resounding talents to our Senior community for the past 4 years, and each visit is as exciting as the first. His voice lights up the room and his illusions are nothing short of magic! As a special treat, we ask him back at Christmas to sign hymns for the holidays. It’s a day of joy and celebration for us all! We highly recommend Patrick Bell and Opera-Kadabra for any and all occasions, but particularly for an upscale or special event. He’s a class act.

From the first time we had Patrick perform we were all amazed and pleasantly surprised. He has a very commanding presence and is very congenial with our seniors. His voice is amazing and his magic acts are a lot of fun to watch in between songs. He is the very first entertainer that i have ever had send me a “Thank You” note for performing at our facility. He comes very highly recommended from me and especially from my residents!

Patrick came to the Garden Grove Regional Library as part of the summer reading program. The audience was enthralled with Patrick’s performance all of the time. Patrick’s talent shines in all of his performance. Patrick is a unique person and everything he presents is memorable! OPERA-KADABRA! is the one program that can reach many people of all ages.

Patrick has been entertaining our seniors at the Age Well/ Dana Point Senior Center for over 4 years. You always put on an unbelievable program and you interact w/the Seniors no matter what their ages are. Your voice is a gift from heaven and I will have you come to our Senior Center anytime. YOU ARE REMARKABLE!!! Thanks for coming to the Dana Point Senior Center??Vanna

Patrick performed for us at our Annual Meeting this past Spring. An amazing entertainer, Patrick had the guests riveted and engaged with his clever, witty dialogue, exceptional voice, and effortless magic tricks. We had classically trained musicians in our group, and they were floored by the power of his voice. He made the evening one of the best events our group has ever had. Thank you so much Patrick, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Patrick performed at my son’s 12 th Birthday party and kids were just mesmerizedby his performance! They actively participated in a magic show and listened and watched the show with a great attention !! What a great fun!! Something new and exiting for kid’s parties. Thank you Patrick for your talent!

Our California Retired Teachers Association division so much enjoyed Patrick’s show last year that whenever the topic of entertainment for our lunches came up, everyone agreed that we should have Opera-Kadabra again. And so we did this year to over 120 guests. Patrick Bell is so easy to work with, so personable, and so professional. He really knows how to get the crowd with him. He filled our requests, made us laugh, amazed us with the up-close magic, and made our May meeting a time to remember. Thank you, Opera-Kadabra!

OMG !!! what a delightful, fun afternoon we had, his performance is so much fun and he really interacts with the audience.He has a great show, we have used him 2 times and will hopefully be our entertainer again this year.He has the most beautiful voice and sings during his act.He came highly recommended from another (RED HAT GROUP) He enjoys what he is doing and it really shows.Super nice guy.

I think Patrick Bell is one of the best entertainers I’ve ever heard and seen. “To me he is FABULOUS”………Carolyn Powers

Patrick Bell is an outstanding performer with the most overwhelming act that we have ever seen or heard. His act is beyond words. He is sincere and so very talented. He has a beautiful operatic voice that is unmatchable. His straight jacket routine leaves us breathless. His personality and his followers love him. I am a member of Friendly Valley Little Theatre and heard of Patrick Bell through another club when he performed for them. He is very prompt and never disappoints his contracted people. I heartily recommend Patrick Bell to perform for any group, party or anyone in the world. ginny boisvert – Friendly Valley Little Theatre

Patrick performed at Fountain Valley Woman’s club’s 50th birthday, leaving everyone shouting for more. He was delightful and his beautiful voice was tremendous. The best program we have ever had and well deserving of a standing ovation.

Patrick made me a Star with his performance for the Rossmoor/Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated. Our club was looking for some lively and spectacular entertainment for our fundraiser luncheon. I immediately remembered Patricks performance for the residents of Park Pacific Tower in Long Beach and recommended him. They checked out his website and decided to book him. He was a BIG hit! I am now getting thank you notes for bringing him to the committee’s attention. He was fabulous!

Patrick,The residents at Lutheran Towers had a great time at both of your performances. Not only can you really sing! but you are very, very funny! The ladies love your “ending act”. We will be looking forward to seeing you back to entertain our residents. Thank you for making all of us laugh.

Patrick Bell is a talent to be seen and heard more than just once. His beautiful singing voice, stage presence, wonderful personality, has our group requesting his return. The Long Beach Retired Teacher’s Association, which has 145 members attending our luncheons, enjoyed his performance and offered him a standing ovation.

Our group absolutely loves Patrick. He is an amazing performer and we look forward to having him again.

Patrick is one of our favorite entertainers! He has been performing at Atria San Juan, a senior living community, on a monthly basis since 2011 and always leaves our residents wanting more of him. He is professional, dependable, punctual, gracious…and very talented!

I met Patrick at the St. Simon and Jude choir in Huntington Beach, where he performs as an outstanding cantor with a booming Baritone voice. I also arranged for him to perform for the John Henry Foundation, a premier organization who care for the mentally ill. He is a triple talent, belting out beautiful operatic arias,while performing flawless magic , interspersed with appropriate comedy.He is personable and quick on his feet, adapting to the moment. Also, he is organized, tactful and follows up, well. I think, I once saw him walking on water, for a moment.

Patrick’s accommodating pre-performance activity in arranging his amazing act was exceeded only by the performance itself. His multiple talents and good humor exceeded all expectations & was enjoyed greatly by our group and their guests at PGAWest. A “magical voice”. What a great chap. We can hardly wait until our paths cross again.

I first saw Pat perform at the San Marino Library. I enjoyed his performance so much, that I had him perform for The Patrons of Italian Culture at our Christmas Party that was held at San Antonio Winery.He not only sang a number of opera songs but he also entertained the group with some of his fantastic magic tricks. Everyone that was there, wanted to know how I came to know of Pat. The people that were there were very pleased with his performance especially his powerful voice when he sang some popular opera numbers. He did not really need a microphone. Jim Gallo

I had seen Patrick at a Silver Anchor Auxiliary (Huntington Beach Hospital) luncheon. I enjoyed him so much that I had him perform at the Huntington Beach Fishing Club Christmas Party. Everyone at the party really enjoyed Patrick’s performance. He was great and everyone at the party had a very good time. Thank you Patrick for a very enjoyable evening.

I first had the pleasure to see and hear Patrick at an LA Opera League event. I very much enjoyed the performance. Patrick has performed several times for The LA Music Center Symphonians, the Culver City Womens Club, the Womens Club of Playa Del Rey, The American Red Cross Retirees Association and other Clubs of which I am a member. July 19, he will be performing at my house for my 80th birthday, I can hardly wait for all my family and friends to finally see and hear Patrick perform! From my heart, I highly recommend Patrick as an entertainer and as a person! Fabiola Hensley Culver City, CA.

When Patrick Bell performed at our party, the entire room was mesmerized. He’s an amazing singer and he combines this talent with a wonderful ability to connect with people, and surprise them. His performance works on so many levels. It’s beautiful, it’s entertaining and hilarious. He is a true professional, creative, and spontaneous. By the end of our evening, everyone was smiling. It truly was a memorable evening. Performers like Patrick are rare.

Our senior group at our church had Patrick entertain us at our lunch meeting. Patrick is very entertaining as his voice is fantastic and he wove magic tricks with the music. He interacted with the people in the audience and kept everyone asking “How did he do that” We plan to invite Patrick back to our group at a date in the future.He was refered by a woman in our group who saw him at the local women’s club.When Patrick was asked what sound equipment he would need, mic or other , he replied “I don’t need any”.

Patrick Bell’s performance of his wonderful opera arias combined with magic, sleight of hand, and witty repartee was greatly enjoyed by members of the Town Club in Pasadena. He was invited back for a Christmas performance. I’m sure he would be enthusiastically received by any and all audiences.

I was the program director for my CalRTA organization for six years and Patrick’s program was the highlight. He not only is a fabulous opera singer, but he is a captivating musician. He had our organization in the palm of his hand for one hour and no one wanted to eat lunch. If I were still doing the program choosing I would choose Patrick first!

Our group had great fun. Patrick was charming and funny, a slick magician and a talented singer. His program fit our needs perfectly.

Patrick you never disappoint our SSJ Jr. High Youth Ministry group! I have been doing this job for 9 years and had all kinds of entertainment for them, but nothing has thrilled them like your performances. The magic is outstanding and they learn that they actually DO like Opera! Every year the parents want to sign up to chaperone on the “magic” night, the word is out! Thanks for being you!!

Patrick came highly recommended to me for a Diamond Jubilee party that I was planning. He put on such an amazing performance that we are still talking about him over one year later. In fact I was so impressed that I had him come to our daughter and her fiance’s engagement party. As always he wowed our guests, including my family who is not easily impressed! He is a delight to work with and is very professional. I highly recommend him for any function where people would want to be amazed and entertained.

I have worked with Patrick Bell in connection with two separate charitable organizations. The first time I met him was as our soloist for an investment ceremony for our Chivalric Order in a large church where we also had a brass and percussion chorale and choir. When the first notes of his beautiful voice resonated palpably throughout the church, I knew we had found a special talent. The first impact of the timbre of his voice was unforgettable and he made a lasting impression on all attending. He sang the mix of contemporary and ancient religious hymns (such as Salve Regina, Pater Noster, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Onward Christian Soldiers) beautifully and con brio. I subsequently heard, quite incidentally, that he was also a talented magician and that he had developed a program combining the two. That was just the solution for a British and American military veterans club I belonged to, looking for something unique and entertaining for a Christmas Dinner Program. As requested, Patrick planned a program mixing his opera-con-magic repertoire with our request that he lead us in singing Christmas carols. I have never seen our club’s members respond so enthusiastically to any entertainment (and I have been a member since 1976!)After his performance many of our members and spouses went up to him to meet him and to express how much they enjoyed his performance. Many asked for his card and inquired how they might invite him to entertain some of their other organizations. The phrase “Back By Popular Demand!” is used so gratuitously these days, but in Patrick’s case I can verify that the membership literally demanded that our executive committee re-engage him for our December 2014 Christmas Program — only for a more extended program. In both cases Patrick and his assistants coordinated all aspects of his performances with us and he accommodated all of our requests. He showed up early and was ready on cue and his performance exceed all expectations. In case you haven’t inferred from my testimonial, I am a big, big Patrick Bell fan and would heartily recommend him to anyone needing an impressive vocal talent who is a pleasure to deal with. Bravo, Patrick!

Patrick,We really enjoyed your performance at the Joslyn Center in Covina! We loved that your show was so interactive. Looking forward to having you perform at the center again. Thank you. Susie

Dear Patrick,There are actually eight wonders of the world …. the eighth being you and your amazing show! You have delighted our family and friends twice now, and this includes everyone from teenagers to seniors. You real do have a way with magic, including how you interact with your audience. And you are so easy to work with in terms of booking performances, confirming the booking, arriving well in advance and planning a celebration. There is no one who would not enjoy your magnificent voice and uniquely entertaining show. We can’t thank you enough for making our family celebrations so memorable.

If you want someone who is professional and entertaining, then Patrick’s Opera-Kadabra is the best entertainment for your group. One of our Les Marraines members mentioned that she had seen Patrick perform for another charity group and recommended him for our fall luncheon event. We enjoyed the magic and loved his singing while Patrick walked around the venue. In fact, our group had him come back to entertain us the next event! Thank you Patrick for your wonderful show!

After his performance at Maggiano’s many of the Red Hat ladies came up to me and expressed how well they loved his performance. Several had said it was the best performance they had attended. His voice is magnificent and his magic is truly unbelievable.

Patrick performed at our state wide teacher conference in February 2014. What a fantastic idea! We had a rolicking good time and we loved how Patrick involved members of the audience in his act. Arrangements were so easy and we could not have been more pleased. Recommend Patrick and OperaKadabra for a fun and innovative performance.

I heard of Patrick from a friend,who saw him at a function for the then Orange County Performing Arts Center. He was highly recommended. So when I was looking for some one to Perform at the Graduation for our special school in Garden Grove I looked him up. His performance at our school was spectacular. The combination of his magic and singing was nothing short of spectacular. It is hard to imagine some one can be that talented in both fields. The way he performed and responded to our students (and our students responded back) was incredible to watch. We have since had him come back for a prom, and our sister school has also invited him to perform for them. Everyone always talks about Patrick and the amazing performances he gave at our school. He will always be in our hearts and of course our Rolodex for any other programs we will have in the future.

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical of an Opera/Magic Act. I couldn’t imagine how that would work and how that would be entertaining. Boy, was I wrong! Patrick Bell is original, entertaining, funny and oh so talented! His voice is wonderful. the show couldn’t be better! It was such a hit with our club and he earned a much deserved standing ovation.

I coorindate many events that require great entertainment. By far Patrick Bell’s Opera Kadabra was the best and most enjoyed perfomance ever. His unique combination of opera and magic were just awesome. My group is still raving over him 3 years later. You just have to check him out. You won’t be disappointed with his talent and engaging performance. Very high end entertainment. And he is super dependable. We are going to have back soon.

Met Patrick at West Coast Talent Showcase. He was such a success at our social he got a standing ovation and we booked him again; he will return to us later this year, we hope. A great voice and personality and unusual combination with the magic show.


Patrick performed at a Women’s group luncheon. He is very talented, professional, and a very nice person to do business with. I recommend him highly.

We love Patrick and he has been coming here for a few years. His beautiful singing style along with his fun magic have the residents go from tears to laughter. Linda Cochran

We surprised my father-in-law who is a opera fan and magician with a performance by Patrick for his birthday. He loved it and so did everyone at the party. He was the highlight of the party!

My group was made up of a wide age span and everyone loved Patrick’s show. I am still getting enthusiastic comments months later. We had a couple of real opera buffs present and they were very impressed with his voice and we all laughed and cheered his whole show.

This was the third or fourth time we have had Patrick for our end-of-year holiday parties. Patrick once again lit up the room, got people into a great mood and wowed us once again with his infectious personality, his great operatic vocals, and the unique and brilliant way he puts opera and prestidigitation together.I whole-heartedly recommend Patrick for anyone’s party, celebration, event, etc.

Patrick Bell was asked to come to our United Methodist ladies luncheon fundraiser. A member of our board saw him perform and brought us one of his cards. We thoroughly enjoyed his entire performance; He has a beautiful voice, and is very clever with his tricks. Always the professional, he thanked us for being such a good audience. He kept us laughing and listening in awe.

I have had Patrick come and sing for my residents a number of times now. We first had him at their annual anniversary dinner & came back the next year by popular demand. He has an amazing voice – no microphone needed. There isn’t a song he can’t do & I love how he interacts with his audience. He always there on time & ready to go, which I appreciate. You need a profession vocalist for an event…he’s your man!!

Mr. Patrick Bell has a wonderful and entertaining program for school age children. I have had him perform for my first grade class on a couple of occasions. The students were completely engaged throughout the program. I found his performance to be both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend Patrick Bell (Opera-Kadabra) to anyone looking for a birthday party idea or an assembly for school. Mary Beth Mora Mary

We’ve had Patrick at Temple Beth Tikvah on several occasions. Between his amazing voice and his sense of humor, he provides a well-rounded program that touch all ages. His name comes up repeatedly in conversations when remembering the good times our group has had over the years!

Don’t miss out on this!!! Operakadabra is the BEST entertainment you will ever see. Patrick Bell puts you on the edge of your seat with his magnificent voice and magic! And you will want to see him gain and again. I have booked him at the Northridge Women’s Club several times and each time the ladies beg me to have him return soon. I have also referered him to friends and other organizations who have also been thrilled to have him entertain for them. It isn’t often that this wonderful and unusual act is available to a public hungry for new talent, so here it is!

What an entertaining performance. Our club was delighted stating “the best program ever”. Patrick Bell is the best entertainer ever. You will not regret booking him for your event.Annette Armstrong Huntington Beach Newcomers Club Programs

Some members of the Anaheim Ebell Club saw Patrick Bell at Convention and we couldn’t wait to get him for our club! He was wonderful and our members loved him! Some who didn’t think they liked opera found that they could enjoy it if Patrick sang it! He was one of our most popular programs.

Patrick Bell is unique in his performance of clever and unique magic and powerful opera vocals. This was the 2nd opportunity I had to enjoy his talents. I had to see him perform again! Our very large group was dazzled by his remarkable blend of song and magic. His straight jacket act is outstanding and judging from the comments from others, his performance will be long remembered.

I have seen Patrick perform before large and small audiences. He is always entertaining and knows how to work the crowd with his baritone voice while perfoming magic. His grand finale is indeed grand. Everyone leaves with a huge smile and light heart. His self contained show is well worth seeing more than once. As a bonus, he is a nice, polite and appreciative young man. President, Silver Anchor Auxiliary, Huntington Beach Hospital.

Our Jamboleers group so enjoyed Patricks performance, it truly was magical. His voice is wonderful and everyone loved the audience participation. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with us.

“Dazzling” was one of the words to describe the bright and witty fundraiser presentation by Patrick Bell who put on the Opera-Kadabra show at our main clubhouse. Patrick’s stunning baritone voice belted out operatic and show tunes as he interacted with the audience at floor level, performing magic card and rope tricks with the assistance of willing guest participants. On the stage level, he charmed everyone with his humor and hocus-pocus antics which had the audience applauding at every illusory feat. Some of the guests uttered “He was the best entertainment to ever perform at the clubhouse”. As the old adage goes, “A Night to Remember” is the closest way to depict the evening.Gordon Briggs President, Surf City Optimist Club Huntington Beach, California

The La Canada Thursday Club of La Canada Flintridge, California has enjoyed your performance at least twice, if not more. The ladies love your tall & handsome looks. Your operatic voice and fascinating magic act done concurrently are amazing. You are an unique act that has no peer. Every member in attendance is awestruck by your performance commenting about your rich baritone voice, great showmanship, and how much they enjoyed the show. I would recommend your show to any club that wants an outstanding show!

A friend recommended Patrick as a possible program for our California Retired Teachers group, so, being the program chairman, I contacted him by e-mail,, then talked on the phone. I found all correspondence prompt and courteous…so easy to deal with. We agreed on the date and time and I was hoping that the thought of “opera” would not scare my audience away. You see, I had never heard or seen Patrick. Wow! Was I and the retired teachers ever blown away!! He has a beautiful voice, a delicious sense of humor, and magic tricks which I still can’t figure out. I was a heroine for booking him. The retirees are still telling me that his performance was the best program we have ever had. And he’s good-looking too. I recommend him to any group.

We have had Patrick out to entertain our residents on several occasions and he never disappoints. The performance is a unique blend of singing and magic, plus humor, which the residents really appreciate as not the usual entertainment. We would be happy to have him in our building again!

Patrick was a delight as an entertainer. He kept the performance moving and the audience engaged throughout the night. He was reliable and a pleasure to deal with in setting up his performance. Patrick has a unique style and was very much appreciated by our club. I recommend him with great enthusiasm.

What a show! And what a showman! Patrick Bell is the epitome of what it means to be talented, polished, professional, warm, funny and drop dead handsome! With his luscious baritone voice, Patrick captivates the audience with marvelous opera and Broadway melodies, interspersed with witty jokes and audience-participation magic tricks. He was the perfect “Treat” for our Halloween Party.And on top of all of that wonder, he was prompt and set up in lickety-split time, and found time to interact with our appreciative residents after his performance.He is coming back soon, and I highly recommend him for any venue and any special event! (From Activities Department at La Costa Glen in Carlsbad, CA)

As a representative for Area VII, Division 46 California Retired Teachers’ Association I have been privileged to enjoy three of Patrick’s performances. Twice we invited him to our bi-monthly CalRTA luncheons in Torrance and once as a representative to the State CalRTA Convention at the Hilton LAX Hotel, I got lucky again. Patrick performed for us on Saturday night after dinner. At our luncheons, Patrick presented himself promptly and with enthusiasm. He was courteous and responsive to our membership on these occasions. He took requests, stayed for pictures, and generally charmed his audience before, during and after his performance.Patrick’s performances have been nothing short of remarkable. He sings like an angel, his magic is baffling and wonderful, and his humor delightful. I have already recommended Patrick to friends and other Divisions of our organization. I would certainly do this again without reservation. I hope to be able to see yet another performance in the near future. Patrick’s talent is a remarkable and unique combination of opera and magic. Bravo!!!!!

I first saw you perform at a birthday party for an 80 year old lady. You were so good, I couldn’t wait to hire you for our church luncheon. You are always very professional and yet friendly and approachable. We completely enjoyed your singing and magic!

Patrick! We were delighted to have you at our Anniversary celebration. Your fabulous performance fascinated all of us; adults as well as the children, since you have combined opera and magic, your powerful baritone took commend of the room, all my quests were mesmerized. The magic part was so entertaining that one of the boys definitely decided to become a magician. If I’ have another occasion coming up I would certainly like to have you perform for us again. We would definitely recommend your performance to others.

I have had Patrick visit Calvin Christian Preschool, in Escondido, numerous times! His fun tricks and amazing voice hold the children in rapt attention!! There is always much laughter as Patrick has a wonderfully funny sense of humor! He dresses in a suit and is a true professional both in his demeanor and his talent! Each time that he visits he has a new opera and new tricks. The teachers and I look forward to his visits as much as our students. I also have parents who come in to watch his shows. After our last show, I asked our students what they liked best about Mr. Patrick’s show (knowing that they would say the illusions or tricks). To my surprise, they all enthusiastically said, “his singing.” Very impressive! He always sends confirmation reminders, arrives early and faithfully sends a thank you note after each show. He is a class act. I have booked him for another show for the preschool and I have also booked him to perform a show for our kindergarten through 5th grade Aftercare program. He easily holds the attention of this diverse age group. Thank you, Patrick, for all of the fun assemblies and great memories!! Shari Hall Director Calvin Christian Preschool

We first heard Patrick Bell at a large birthday party in San Clemente. We thought he was outstanding. When we planned our 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration, we hired Patrick immediately. He was very professional. He asked us if there were any special musical numbers that we wanted. He arrived on time and his performance was wonderful. He even sent us a thank you note. I believe that several guests at our party engaged him for their events. We would definitely recommend him to others. Dick and Estelle Blake

Patrick performed at our company year end celebration in 2010. His performance was very entertaining and he has a great voice. I had never seen/heard of this type of act before. Our employees enjoyed his program. It was a pleasant surprise for them.

I have engaged Patrick twice for club functions. Both times he was a total success with the audience. Not only is he very talented but he is reliable and works with you on timing and material………….

I have had the pleasure of attending four performances of Opera-Kadaba. The number of people attending ranged from 50 to over 200 and the accolades of all four performances were tremendous. Two of those times, I made the arrangements for Patrick to perform for an organization. All contact with him was professional and timely. He was most gracious and capable of monitoring and adjusting to the physical environment as well as the various ages of attendees. I had requested and received promotional materials that I shared with other organizations.

We loved having Opera Kadabra as part iof our CONDIT GALA even on Saturday, November 16. We have had tremendous feedback from those in the audience about yur performance!!! At a special Long Beach event last night (11/20), both Alan Davidson (our Executive Director) and I ran into many of those who also attended our event – your praises were abundant! Thanks again for making our evening for CHLB Foundation such a success

As Assistance League of Long Beach’s program chairman for Life Membership, Patrick Bell’s name was given to me by other members who had enjoyed his wonderful performance at local community fund raisers. He was most efficient signing a contract, arrived on time and the audience was captivated by his beautiful voice, humor and of course magic tricks. 5 Stars!!!!!Sincerely, Trish Stea Assistance League Long Beach

I first saw Patrick at a California Retired Teachers (Cal RTA) luncheon and was absolutely enchanted – everyone loved him! Last March he performed for about 75 people at our church and the response was the same; he’s terrific!!! The singing, the magic, all of it, was excellent and exciting. He engages the audience beautifully. Upon first contacting him, he was easy to deal with, pleasant and so professional – he even wrote a thank you to our group for having him! Three cheers, Patrick, you are wonderful!!!!

we saw your program at our upland travelers meeting yesterday and were so impressed. i also belong to the rancho cucamonga woman’s club and would be interested in your program, however, we are on a rathr tight budget. could you give us a price on a 30minute program. we normally have around 40 women attend. thanks winnie sage

I first heard Patrick sing at the 2011 Performers Showcase in Yorba Linda. Librarians from all over California attend to watch the scheduled performers for future programming at their respective Libraries. Patrick serenaded our lunch table before his actual stage performance. Charming personality, beautiful voice, I knew I had to have him at the Aliso Viejo Library. Patrick was professional, prompt, charmed our audience, and I will definitely book him again, and recommend you do so as well.

We invited Patrick to performed at our annual spring fundraiser. He arrived promptly and was very professional. The show was supposed to be entertainment for the students while the adults sipped their wine and perused through our silent auction. What ended up happening was many adults heard his act and sat down for his entire show! He had the complete attention of all of the guests, from our youngest viewers, aged four, the teenagers, and the adults. Kline School says, “Encore, Encore”!!

I first met Patrick at my mother’s Board and Care, where he performed for the ladies and their families. He was so terrific and entertaining that I had him for my private Christmas party at my home that year. He is an amazing entertainer that was loved by all!

I just saw your show at Church of the Good Shepherd in Arcadia.Your voice is amazing and breathtaking!!! Thank you! Take Care!

Patrick did a family program in the Crowell Public Library in San Marino in May (2013) and it was thoroughly enjoyed by both the adults and the children in the audience. His powerful voice resonated beautifully throughout the room, and his magic was quite impressive. He injects both fun and learning in the show and he is very agile and clever in conversing with the children. It is quite a feat to delight the large age range we had in the audience, from pre-teen to seniors, but he did it.

We just saw Patrick perform for children today at the Fairfax Library. We enjoyed his opera performance and his magic show.

We heard you at the Mother’s Day tea at Del Obispo Terrace and enjoyed you very much. Your interaction with the residence was delightful to behold. And that voice… Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Saw Patrick this weekend preforming at a banquet at The Hotel Laguna. Just amazing, very talented, kept my undivided attention.

I had the great pleasure of seeing Patrick perform at a retired teacher’s luncheon in Torrance this week, and was thoroughly entertained. My mother and I can’t stop talking about your act! And of course now I giggle a little every time I hear Largo al Factotum…..

Thank you for your wonderful performance. (I saw you on 9/11/12 in Whittier, CA). This is what I posted on FaceBook:Recently saw this man perform. He is amazing!! He has combined magic with opera/musicals into a mesmerizing performance suitable for any age, any audience!He interacts well with the audience and is at ease with his surroundings.

I have only been in California a few months and it was my first time ever. This lifelong New Yorker has never seen culture this well performed, informal and crazily combined with another love and passion. Today I wittnessed Patrick’s loves, passions and talents and they were better than anything that I have ever seen in NY City or anywhere in NY State.

Patrick, Patrick, Patrick. Our Sundays nights are not complete without your amazing magic skills. Thank you so much.

On February 9 Patrick was the featured entertainment for a group of retired teachers. Some are active with the Opera Guild and others just enjoy going to the opera. But all were absolutely delighted when Opera and Magic came to them. The calls and emails lauding the program are still coming.

Thanks for a terrific show at Riviera Club today. You were amazing and kept the audience stunned and amused for over an hour!!Alice Yensen
