Opera for everyone!  For those not familiar with The Opera Club, there are no expertise standards, dues or membership requirements, other than a desire to learn more about opera, to share your interest with other opera lovers, and to enjoy great music.  Meetings are held on five Sunday afternoons 2:30 - 5 p.m. during the opera season in the new home of Nashville Opera, The Noah Liff Opera Center.

Meetings are casual and the programs are conducted by a person who volunteers to present.  Sometimes two or three people get together and pool their interests and resources to present a program   Audio/visual equipment is available.

Those attending may bring simple, light refreshments to share if they wish, although this is not necessary.  It is more important to come prepared to experience some beautiful music, meet and socialize with good people of like interests, share opera experiences, and have a great time.  Please add the following dates to your calendar, and plan to join us.  To be notified of The Opera Club activities, e-mail me at the address below.

Volunteers are needed to present programs for the remaining open meetings.  If you have an opera(s) or opera theme, or an opera-related area of interest that you’d like to share and present at a meeting, please contact me to discuss it.


See you at the opera.
