Aria Fest – Tacoma Opera Reflections with Noel Koran
We hope that you enjoy our newest Reflections video with our Artistic Director, Noel Koran, as he discusses some of Tacoma Opera’s past productions and favorite moments! In this video, we take a few moments to learn more about Tacoma Opera’s Aria Fest contest and survey.
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.
