Why Join the Bradenton Opera Guild?
We love opera, and enjoy supporting Sarasota Opera. Our monthly meetings give us the opportunity to hear the wonderful singers of Sarasota Opera in a more intimate space, and to get to know the singers personally. In opera we hear the power and glory of the human voice, singing memorable melodies, and whenever members of Bradenton Opera Guild get together, we have fun.
