Our 21st season, we are grateful to continue the momentous work we accomplished together during our Summer Fundraising Initiative.
Your support furthers our mission to support young emerging artists while continuing to ensure accessible and affordable opera for the greater Houston community. When you support Opera in the Heights, you are helping to provide opportunities to 100+ artists each season. Your support also creates opportunities for Houston area students through our Education Initiative, which offers our principal singers additional paid opportunities to work directly in local classrooms, giving students an in-depth look into everything that goes into the art form including: foreign language, music, history, and cultures from across the globe.
This is the kind of impact your support of Opera in the Heights has on our community, and on the preservation and future of the arts right here in Houston.
How can YOU support Opera in the Heights this opera season?
Let's count the ways...
Become an Artist Chair and give a gift in honor of our Orchestra, Chorus, Supporting Roles, or Principal Roles
Ask your employer to consider a Matching Gift in honor of your generous contribution to Oh!
The most simple and profound giving option is sharing the gift of opera with a friend. Single tickets are on sale for the remainder of the 2016-2017 season and make the perfect gift for any special occasion!
Donate your time and join the family, the Oh! Guild
