Opera Western Reserve needs your help!
Since its founding 16 years ago, Opera Western Reserve has proudly become a pillar of culture in the Youngstown Area. Now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OWR has had to cancel events for the first time ever. We were forced to cancel Educational Outreach performances, impacting over 1000 local students, and we regretfully cancelled the annual Summer Cabaret, which impacts our fiscal security.
OWR's volunteer Board of Directors and minimal production staff are working diligently from home to do everything we can during this difficult time to minimize costs and raise the funds necessary to sustain our organization until we can safely reopen, but losing ticket sales means that we lose a primary source of income. We need your help to reach our 17th season!
With so much uncertainty in the future, Opera Western Reserve asks for your help to avoid the avalanche of a financial crisis threatening to impact local arts for years to come.
Donate today!The mission of Opera Western Reserve is to provide local performers a spring-board platform by presenting professional opera performances while providing educational outreach for local students and aspiring singers. We take pride in the part we play to bring culture and commerce to Youngstown, and we stand in solidarity with all local arts organizations, as we work together to combat the potentially disastrous effects of the pandemic. By donating, you support the performers, contractors and production staff who work hard year-round to provide quality opera, and you shore up the legacy of arts and music for future generations.
