Pacific Opera Victoria is incredibly blessed with a wonderful audience and committed supporters, whose encouragement and assistance enables us to achieve new levels of artistic excellence each season. Our approach of "building opera from the ground up" allows for greater creativity within the art form itself, and provides enhanced opportunities for the wonderful artists who work in opera. This uniquely creative approach has also allowed us to cultivate a sophisticated audience for opera that is, per capita, two to five times larger than that of any other city in Canada!
All of our successes are built on strong community support. We are keenly aware and extremely grateful that our President's Circle and Impresario Circle members are our most essential partners in achieving our artistic and institutional goals.
Annual gift of $1000 to $9999
The President's Circle is a Patron level giving campaign, for those who contribute $1000 to $9999 a year to Pacific Opera Victoria.
We invite you to be a member of the President's Circle, to support POV and to enjoy opportunities to be more involved with your opera company. We offer a wide range of benefits to enhance your experience of the productions your contribution makes possible. These include our working rehearsal and lecture series, receptions with a chance to meet our artists, backstage tours, and much more.
Annual gift of $10,000 or more
Our leading philanthropists, who give $10,000 or more within a year are members of the Impresario Circle. As our leading philanthropists, our Impresario Circle Members make the extraordinary decision to include our company in their major philanthropy. In doing so, they provide resources for success, inspire others to invest in our shared vision for opera, and enable everyone to take a true artistic journey here in our community.
As well, Pacific Opera Victoria brings together Impresario Members each year for a special celebration, allowing us to pay tribute to the significant support for opera in Victoria from our Impresario Circle.
