BECOMING A FRIEND REASONS TO JOIN HGO
Without the support of our Friends, HGO could not continue. If you would like to support our mission – Advancing Young Singers – do join us!
A principal benefit enjoyed by our Friends is the Friends Rehearsal. All Friends are invited, in the run-up to each opera, to a rehearsal followed by a reception. You can observe both casts in rehearsal with contributions from production director and music director. Then, at a reception, meet the directors and the singers. These are always most enjoyable occasions.
In addition, benefit from a priority booking period and receive reguar news about all HGO activity, including opera insight evenings. Enjoy the satisfaction of supporting young singers. Support HGO and see where your generous donations lead – read some of our Success Stories.
Your support will make all the difference. We are a charity run by volunteers, with no paid staff, no overheads and no premises. Your donations are appied directly to our productions. Through more than thirty years, HGO has grown into a highly regarded opera training company offering high quality enjoyment to its audiences, while ‘Advancing Young Singers’.
