Join our Guild!

Dear El Paso Opera Supporter,

  1. Do you enjoy attending live opera?
  2. Are you interested in the preservation of El Paso Opera?
  3. Do you want to help our dynamic general and artistic director, David Grabarkewitz, bring creative programming to El Paso?
  4. Do you think that innovative as well as traditional programs can help build new audiences?
  5. Do you feel that educational outreach to our schools is important?
  6. Are you interested in knowing others who want to keep opera alive in our community?
  7. Are you willing to volunteer to help El Paso Opera?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are the person we are looking for to be a member of the El Paso Opera Guild!  The Guild is the largest donor to El Paso Opera.  Our major fundraiser each year is Encores and Overtures, a fabulous evening that kicks off the season.  This event needs many volunteers to help in a variety of capacities.

Members of the Guild staff the Opera Boutique which sells opera themed items at each opera.  Guild members are also invited to attend the final dress rehearsal with area high school and university students.  Rehearsal refreshments are provided by our talented bakers and cooks and some members provide home hospitality to our visiting artists.  The enthusiasm and dedication of guild members are the cogs that keep the wheels of El Paso Opera turning.

Join our members for outings to the Cinemark Theatres to enjoy “Saturday at the Opera.”  The Met’s simulcasts of eleven operas are and aural and visual wonder.  Be with us for our Preview Luncheons to meet and hear the stars of the upcoming production.

Your membership in the El Paso Opera Guild is a vote of confidence in David Grabarkewitz and his energy and vision for opera in El Paso.  Won’t you join us in this our 18th season of bringing the art of opera to our community?  Select the areas of service that interest you on the application form and be part of the most important facet of El Paso Opera.  Participate as much as you would like!

Thank you for your support of El Paso Opera.  I look forward to joining you in Guild activities!
