OperaLex invites you to join Central Kentucky’s vibrant opera scene by donating to OperaLex through membership in its Bravo Guild. Whether you are a grass-roots fan whose knowledge of opera is pre-novice or an aficionado, donating to OperaLex through Bravo Guild will bring you up-close glimpses of the art of musical storytelling.
You will receive BravoLex!, our snail-mailed newsletter, presently published three times a year, with in-depth articles about the productions of and activities of the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre, the Schmidt Opera Outreach Program, the Academy for Creative Excellence and Broadway Bound, and our weekly bulletin, keeping you up to date on the latest activities and productions of the University of Kentucky Opera Theatre and its partner, the University of Kentucky Symphony Orchestra.
Become involved in the world of musical storytelling. Meet UK Opera Theatre’s dynamic faculty, enjoy Dr. Tedrin Blair Lindsay’s exciting classes offering in-depth study of operas, musicals, famous composers and opera singers, attend vocal competitions in which talented young opera singers vie for scholarships, and enjoy UK Opera Theatre’s undergraduate studio opera productions in addition to UK Opera Theatre’s magnificent fully-produced operas, musicals, and its annual musical review, It’s a Grand Night for Singing.
You can also become involved as a volunteer. Perhaps you would like to help organize or make a cash donation to the catered dinner provided to the cast of each opera or musical production in its final week of rehearsals. You could help organize the lunch and refreshments for the judges during the UK Vocal Competition for Young Singers in October or you could help organize the lunch and refreshments for the contestants and judges during the Metropolitan Opera Kentucky District Auditions, hosted each November by OperaLex. To become involved in these rewarding activities, please download the Bravo Guild Volunteer Form (please check back soon; the form is currently being revised), let us know what you’d enjoy doing, and return it to us.
Those donating to OperaLex through Bravo Guild also have the opportunity to elect Bravo Guild’s Executive Committee, which is charged with the oversight of OperaLex’s volunteer opportunities. Its elected members serve as voting members of the OperaLex Board of Directors.
Please join OperaLex in promoting these wonderful art forms and in supporting the talented singers and faculty members of the UK Opera Theatre. Click here to make a donation to OperaLex through Bravo Guild. We look forward to having you become a part of OperaLex and its Bravo Guild!
Our membership year runs from July 1st to June 30th.
