Dear Friends of Tacoma Opera, I’m pleased to announce that our Spring Artist Fund Drive was extremely successful. With the funds raised through your generous donations, it will allow us to help support everyone involved in Iolanthe who was not able to share their wonderful talents with us because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. They have been without work or income since then, but with your generous support, Tacoma Opera will now be able to send the Iolanthe artists checks averaging $500 each for every individual performing a major role. I am personally grateful to everyone who donated to help support our artists in their time of need. THANK YOU!!!
Noel Koran, General Director, Tacoma Opera
Be a Ghost Light and Support our Artists
After the success of our Spring Artist Fund Drive, Tacoma Opera will continue supporting our local artists with donations from the community, so please continue helping the people who make Opera possible for us. For without the artists and musicians, there can be no Opera.
Tacoma Opera relies on the gracious support of individuals like you who care about and support the Performing Arts, particularly in uncertain times like these when our whole society is affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Without your support, we simply wouldn’t be here, so please give what you can.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We encourage people to donate on a monthly basis because it’s easier on your budget and it makes our cash flow more manageable. You can set up monthly donations by checking the monthly payment box on the PayPal donation page.
