The Pasadena Opera Guild has begun this program year with energy and talent.
Once again, Orange County Opera is bringing music to our schools. With support from the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts in the form of a grant, we continue to present our Youth Education Program to ten local elementary schools. There is not a moment wasted in educating the children about opera in a hands-on, engaging setting.
In May, we gave six $2500 scholarship awards to outstanding young singers. Our new scholarship year has begun and we look forward to hearing an array of talented young singers at our coming events. Our past awardees are doing well in their endeavors – eight are on the current Metropolitan Opera roster and many others are singing in major opera houses around the world. Cathy Miller Popovic, our artist consultant, continues to provide us with exceptional talent for our scholarship program.
The Pasadena Opera Guild is a non-profit, volunteer organization which has much to offer its members - intimate settings for listening to the opera stars of the future, developing young enthusiasts who will become the next generation of opera supporters and the opportunity to personally contribute to the future of opera in the community.
Join us. The stage is set to effectively carry on with our good work.
