Double your gift to Opera House Arts today through June 15!
Thanks to a group of lead donors and board members, every new and increased gift you make to OHA this year (compared to last year) will be matched 1:1 up to $25,000.
With your extra help we stand a much better chance of making our way through the dark months ahead. Please donate to the Opera House by June 15 and double your gift!
As you may have heard, the Opera House board of directors and staff have made the difficult decision to keep the doors to our spaces closed through the end of August. This means we have postponed our normal summer season of live performances until next year. While we firmly believe this is the best way for us to help safeguard the health of our community, it will deal a devastating blow to us financially.
The pandemic poses an existential threat to performing arts organizations like ours. The simple truth is that in order to make it to the other side of this moment, we need your support now more than ever. While news from arts organizations across the country can be disheartening this season, we also have some wonderful news. Thanks to a group of lead donors and board members, every new and increased gift you make this year (compared to last year) will be matched 1:1 up to $25,000. With your extra help we stand a much better chance of making our way through the dark months ahead. Please donate to the Opera House by June 15 and double your gift.
Though our doors are closed for now, your generous support will provide the devoted Opera House staff the resources necessary to continue its work to serve this community. Our staff is working behind the scenes to prepare for the safe presentation of future live programs (perhaps outdoors) while finding new ways to serve our mission and stay connected with you online, as we did with our Voice 2 Voice Poetry Program’s virtual showcase and the virtual Harbor Residency we hosted last week. We hope you enjoy our new “Coffee on the Couch” video interviews with community members, where this week’s video, below, features Ashley Pesek, director of Opiate-Free Island Partnership. And please mark your calendars for July 6 at 7pm, when we will offer our annual gala as a free, live, online event.
Thank you, OHA family. We miss seeing you, and please stay safe.
