My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mtzo Martinez Opera, Inc., Martinez, CA, USA
The Martinez Opera provides high quality opera performances at an affordable cost. I have volunteered for the opera and am always impressed by the commitment of the Executive Director Maria Billingsley. She is the lifeblood of the opera. It is amazing to me that our small town can produce the caliber of performance that we do. We have gotten rave reviews from the San Francisco Chronicle and people come from all over the Bay Area to attend our opera. It is something we're very proud of here in Martinez. We do, however, always need support and funding from the community. Maria stages bi-monthly Dine with a Diva dinner events which draw about 80 people from our community and is a highly successful fundraiser. As a volunteer, I have paritipcated in many events and find each event highly rewarding. It feels wonderful to be in the thick of things and know that I am supporting a community treasure. Fellow volunteers are highly committed as well.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The opportunity to be a part of something that is of high caliber and contributes so much to the community.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Equally committed to ensuring that this local opera company thrives and endures.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Find a permanent place to store scenery, costumes and props needed to stage an opera. Further, the Executive Director could be relieved of paying expenses from her own pocket to keep the opera afloat.
