About Opera Pacifica
Opera Pacifica Education and Repertory Association (O.P.E.R.A.)
Opera Pacifica (Opera Pacifica Education and Repertory Association) is a Non-Profit organization serving south-western Washington including the areas of Olympia, Lacey, Hoquiam Centralia and Chehalis, Fort Lewis and Yelm. Opera Pacifica was founded on March 20, 2002.
It is our goal and mission to perform a minimum of two major operas per year, hold regular recitals, perform at various fundraisers and community events, conduct classes for young people in music appreciation and performance, conduct lecture series with performance examples for school children and at adult education classes.
It is our intention to create a conduit for mentoring apprentice singers and instrumentalists, as well as set, costume, and lighting designers, sound engineers, stage managers and directors. We have already begun to place aspiring young musicians alongside professional mentors in the orchestra and chorus.
We desire to make opera more accessible to the communities we serve, not only through the above activities, but also by providing scholarships to aspiring musicians and free lectures and discounted performances to seniors.
Founded in 2002.
