Festival Opera Guild
our biggest fans! 

The Guild is our core group of fans, providing support for the company by volunteering at events, participating in fundraising activities, providing backstage support during our productions, and as ambassadors for Festival Opera in the community. Over the last three decades Guild members have bonded as friends in appreciation of opera, expanded our reach into the community, and helped ensure the success of our performances. 

Sostenuto Club

This special level of membership at Festival Opera includes the leadership of the company and offers access to private events with our outstanding artists. Donors who make a pledge of + $1000 per year are a part of the Club.
