While any day is a good day to support Opera in the Ozarks, it’s particularly exciting to support us on Giving Tuesday, when people all over the world give back a little to support good causes. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are spending on yourself and your loved ones, #Giving Tuesday, November 28, is giving for others.
If you have been to Inspiration Point, you know how well named our little corner of Arkansas is. It’s a place for opera singers and musicians to grow and thrive, to be inspired and to give inspiring performances! If you’ve been an audience member, you know what magic happens on our stage. Help keep the inspiration!
Supporting Opera in the Ozarks is one of the most solid investments you can make. Why? Because 96% of every dollar you contribute goes directly to support the programs.
And, don’t forget to designate Opera in the Ozarks as your charity of choice for Amazon Smile – you shop and Amazon donates.

You may specify that your scholarship donation is for a specific singer or can be used by the artistic director for casting needs.
