We invite you to join the Opera Guilds—two rapidly growing groups of dedicated opera lovers who are determined to see opera thrive in our community.

The Sarasota and Bradenton Opera Guilds work to develop greater understanding of opera, increase the audience reached by this art form, and raise funds for Sarasota Opera.

Our Guilds fund scholarships for young singers, bring opera to schoolchildren and seniors, and act as the opera's ambassadors. Busy schedules of musical programs, salons, lectures and excursions are year-round features of both Guilds. Meets are open to the public and new members are always welcome.

We salute our Guilds and their ever-growing membership!
