OUR ARTISTIC LEGACY IS IN YOUR HANDS

Each year, Opera Queensland shares opera with communities far and wide across our breathtaking state. As custodians of the art form, it is our mission to make opera an integral part of Queensland life by empowering, educating and inspiring members of our state-wide community from Normanton to Mount Isa to St George.

In 2018, your vital support helped us

  • Travel 13,869km
  • Deliver 42 programs and performances across regional and remote Queensland
  • Reach 9,467 school students + community workshop participants

This year, the Mather Foundation has generously pledged to match donations to the 2019 Annual Appeal up to $20,000. Donate by June 30 and your gift will be matched allowing us to reach more Queenslanders across our vast state, from metropolitan areas to flood and drought affected regions – Queenslanders who might not otherwise experience the wonder of opera.

COMPOSED IN QUEENSLAND

One of the highlights of 2018 was Composed in Queensland, an initiative that saw four Opera Queensland artists with songwriters Megan Washington and Sara Storer work with students in five shires across the Central West. Students from Longreach, Winton, Blackall, Barcaldine and Barcoo wrote songs about the unbridled joys and gut wrenching hardships of life in the outback.

At the end of the project, students came together to perform their special songs for the communities alongside ARIA Award-Winners Megan Washington, Sara Storer and Opera Queensland artists. Some families travelled over 500km to attend the performance which was live streamed to the Opera Queensland Studio, uniting audiences in Brisbane and Longreach to watch and listen as one.

It is our mission to go further, to give students across the vast state of Queensland the chance to experience an art form that is powerful, enriching and relevant to all. We warmly encourage you to become a vital stakeholder of the future of opera in Queensland.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

In 2018, your support enabled Opera Queensland to facilitate 42 projects across Queensland engaging thousands of students and hundreds of regional participants.
