Dear Friends of Tacoma Opera,

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the world has changed for those artists, musicians and production personnel who have dedicated their lives to the performing arts and in our particular case, Opera. Tacoma Opera is also out of necessity changing too.

The company is actively reassessing the way it will do business in the future and how we will be able to serve the community, the artists and the amazing art form of Opera. The most important lesson we at Tacoma Opera have learned so far because of the pandemic is that Opera is first and foremost about people. It’s about the artists who have dedicated their lives to the art of singing. It’s about the musicians who share their incredible musical skills with us. And it’s about the patrons who love Opera, who grace us with their presence at performances, who share their gratitude at the end of performances with thankful applause and who support the artists, musicians and the art form of Opera by buying tickets to performances and by giving us their crucial financial and moral support.

None of us knows for certain right now when the lights in the theater will be turned on again and when the theater will be filled again, but Tacoma Opera is still here and committed to supporting the artists and musicians who make Opera possible for those who love Opera. I therefore ask you once again for your financial support by investing in the future, by supporting the people who make Opera possible.

Please give what you can to the Tacoma Opera Artist Fund. I pledge that every dollar you give will go to supporting the people who make Opera possible.

Noel Koran
