I sang in the chorus of the Phoenix Opera for 3 operas. The rehearsals were well-run; the singers and staff treated with the utmost kindness and respect. When it was time for costume fittings and final rehearsal, at a time when tensions are high and tempers flare, EVERYONE continued to be professional, kind and courteous. It was a joy and a privilege to be affiliated with the Phoenix Opera.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them more funding for more operas!

We are lucky to have the Phoenix Opera here. The operas are beautifully staged and the music wonderful. The Phoenix Opera is far more than its performances. There are concerts all over the Valley that are fairly priced so that anyone wanting to get to know us may attend. Our creative
directors, Gail Dubenbaum and John Massaro are very accessible to all.
So are the board members and every volunteer and the artists when they are in town. It is hard to be a start up arts organization and this one is worth keeping.

There would be more volunteers and publicity but in this economy it is difficult.
