Volunteer Through the Opera Guild
“Each is necessary to make it stand...”“An opera company is like a three-legged stool. It rests upon three important foundations: its staff, its board of trustees, and its volunteers. Without any of the three it would fall down. Each is necessary to make it stand.”Glynn Ross General Director, Arizona Opera
