Community Matching Campaign on Now!

People all over the world have been celebrating local opera on World Opera Day on October 25th. In solidarity with the drive to create extraordinary, local, live performances,  we’ve launched a campaign to raise the funds that will ensure we can offer another season of opera throughout the Okanagan next year.

This past summer, Opera Kelowna reached over 3000 people through our production of Béatrice et Bénédict, Opera Under the Stars and Parks Alive! concerts, Sidewalk Serenades, and our Singing the ’97 recitals in Lake Country, Kelowna, Penticton, Naramata and Oliver. We were proud to launch our revised training program and host ten young artists in our Valley Opera Summer Intensive, and to welcome an emerging conductor in residence as part of a national program for Women Conductors.

 

In all our programs, we strive to create local work and opportunities, and are proud to have contributed to the employment of more than 40 BC artists and arts workers throughout our programs this year. We truly believe that opera makes life better in the Okanagan for all kinds of people, and we hope that you agree.

As we plan for the future, we’re asking for your help.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 over the next 30 days (Oct 25 – Nov 25).
Members of our community have already come together to promise a match up to $12,500 in public funds, ensuring every dollar of your support is automatically doubled.

Life is great in the Okanagan.

Opera can make it even better.
