One of the unfortunate results of today's budget constraints on elementary through high school programming is a severely limited or non-existent music curriculum in our schools. The Twin Cities Opera Guild mission is to fill this need; school children are the principle beneficiaries of our funds. All funds raised by our organization go directly to our opera and music education programs. All administrative costs are covered by membership dues.
In 2018 22,500 students, in elementary, middle and high schools; public, private and parochial schools, participated in educational programs sponsored by Twin Cities Opera Guild. The Guild sponsors in-school residencies and presentations by Cantus, Fargo-Moorhead Opera Young Artists, and University of Minnesota Opera Theatre Quartet, putting professional singers into the classrooms. Opera for the Young presents mini-operas in elementary schools with the students participating as the chorus. We fund musical productions by elementary and middle school students, who make the sets, act as stage crew, and perform as singers and orchestra. Grants to VocalEssence and the St. Paul Conservatory of Music provide music education to hundreds of children. The Guild provides scholarships for young singers through children’s choirs and awards annual scholarships to young singers through the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions program.
Your support enables the Twin Cities Opera Guild to continue its opera education projects, offering children a foundation for a love of music that will stay with them throughout their adult life. The impressive list of programs supported by the Twin Cities Opera Guild last year can be seen by clicking here. Of course, all donations are fully tax-deductible. We thank you for your assistance with our opera education projects.
