In this period of great uncertainty, I hope that music can be an antidote to isolation, stress, and financial hardship, which I and so many others are experiencing. In response, I see that music is more important than ever - with our virtual and online spaces filled with art, music, opera, and culture. By sharing the exciting programs and artists who plan to join Opera Edwardsville this fall, I hope we are able to divert your thoughts from present worries to imagine life on the other side.
To our patrons and ticket buyers, comprised of many music lovers, community supporters, and philanthropists - Thank you for your continued support of small arts organizations in this difficult time.
At a time like this, I am reminded of how fortunate Opera Edwardsville is to be surrounded by a community with a vibrant support for the arts. All programs are moving forward, and I am hopeful hope to see everyone this fall for what promises to be an incredible 3rd season of opera in Edwardsville.
