PROUD TO PLAY OUR ROLES IN OUR COMMUNITY
A Message from Anne Black
On behalf of our OPAS staff, students and volunteers, I hope you are staying safe and healthy.
What a difference a year makes. Typically in the summer, we, along with the team at the MSC Box Office, are busily processing season ticket orders and navigating seating maps. This summer though, we are participating in webinars and zoom calls with colleagues across the nation – as well as producers, artists and agents – discussing next steps for our arts presenting industry.
So, what do we have in store for Season 48? As you might predict, we’re getting very creative as we explore options that will meet the world-class programs you expect from OPAS. Currently, we are re-imagining OPAS a bit by connecting with artists and agents to curate a season like no other. It will likely be a combination of streamed programs, some created uniquely for us and some produced for selected presenting organizations. It is our hope to have a more traditional season by late spring.
Even though we are on an extended intermission during these challenging times, we welcome your support through your annual contribution ensuring your seating priority when we announce future programs. Click here to make your donation now. If you have questions about planned giving to the OPAS Permanent Endowment fund, our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have.
As always, we thank you for your support. Stay safe and healthy.
We can’t wait to see you in Rudder again when it’s safe for all of us.
OPAS Executive Director
