About HGOco

HGOco connects HGO’s creative resources with our diverse and vibrant community. The “co” in HGOco stands for company, community, and collaboration. HGOco’s innovative and engaging programs take place throughout the Houston area—in schools, parks, community landmarks, alternative performance spaces, and at the Wortham Theater Center, providing a range of opportunities for Houstonians of all ages to explore, engage, and learn through the inspiring art of opera.

Our nationally recognized Community Programs include the Song of Houston initiative which commissions new chamber operas and song projects that resonate with contemporary life in Houston.

Our multi-disciplinary Seeking the Human Spirit initiative highlights universal spiritual themes raised in opera, while expanding and deepening connections to opera and art.

We offer a rich variety of Education Programs including Opera to Go!, High School Night and student matinees of main-stage productions, the Bauer Family High School Voice Studio, professional development workshops for teachers, opera camps, and residency programs.
