  • Houston Grand Opera has been an enduring symbol of Houston pride for nearly six decades, and now it is poised to reach new heights.

    In an era when many cities are struggling to sustain their arts organizations, HGO is not just surviving, but thriving-in the quality of its art and its impact on our city.

    Why are we one of the rare success stories in the world of the arts?

    Because of people like you: members of the HGO family. Your gifts and dedication made the company what it is today. You made it happen.

    Together, we have achieved so much, but there is still much to do to ensure that HGO is the cultural service provider our city needs. The opportunity to do so is time-limited. We must act now.

    Inspiring Performance—The Campaign for Houston Grand Opera is the largest fundraising effort in the history of the performing arts in Houston.

    Our goal is to raise $165 million or more by December 31, 2014. It's a bold goal, in keeping with HGO's bold vision.

    As co-chairs of Inspiring Performance-The Campaign for Houston Grand Opera, we invite you to support Houston's own world-class opera company. Please join us in building the most inspiring era in HGO's glorious history.
