THE GUILD has been an important part of the success of Mississippi Opera since 1945 and shares a commitment to providing outstanding productions and educational outreach. It is a community for our Opera family that aims to cultivate attendance and increase the engagement of those who appreciate Opera and musical theatre, as well as providing financial support.
GET INVOLVED IN OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH OPERA AND MUSICAL THEATRE
The Mississippi Opera has various volunteer opportunities ranging from backstage support to being part of our social and educational events or community outreach programs throughout the year.
Gain experience in the Arts. Become a volunteer office assistant and support our office with day-to-day tasks.
Show your “Southern Hospitality.” Welcome internationally renowned artists by offering to host them in your home during a production. Most artists require very little attention and actually prefer to spend time preparing for their performance or relaxing; that is to say, that they don’t require or expect attention from their host families.
Make new Guild members feel welcome: Join the membership committee and help organize events for our new members.
Participate in special fundraising events/parties that help benefit the Mississippi Opera.
