Driven by the need to keep our members and friends safe in a difficult time, we have made the sad decision to cancel our in-person Candlelight Dinner again this year. We will miss seeing you, but we encourage you to brighten the lives of children with the wonder of music.

Invitation with image of candle message to Keep Shining, music brightens the lives of children

For 59 years, the annual Candlelight Dinner has been a major source of funds for musical performance access and educational activities, student-led in-school musical productions, in-school professional performances and residencies, and many other music education programs for children in the Twin Cities, outstate Minnesota, western Wisconsin and eastern North Dakota. Music is indeed fundamental to a well-rounded education for every student.

During 2021, the Twin Cities Opera Guildhas continued its mission of bringing music to children.
