"OPC was the encouragement I needed to make singing a top priority in my life again. A chance to learn and grow musically with great artists while allowing me to share the gift of music with others." — Coral Owdom, soprano
As a cultural phenomenon, opera has existed in one form or another for over a thousand years. It has relevance for our everyday life helping us to better understand the eternal joys, triumphs, and absurdities of life. It is up to us to save this beautiful art form for the audiences of the future and not let it die on our watch!!! And YOU have the opportunity along with us to help pass opera on to the next generation by supporting OPC in our efforts to #SaveOpera!!!!
Your generous contributions will receive some pretty exciting perks too! Visit our Indiegogo page to find out all the details.
