for the love of opera

Witnessing the opera is a life changing experience, but becoming a part of the opera is one that can change the lives of those around you. At HGO there are a plethora of ways to share your love for the arts, from volunteer opportunities to networking events, and of course a good party or two. We invite you to find your place here and see all the opera can inspire within you.
