Support The Opera Company of Middlebury
Help bring the magic of opera to mid-Vermont !
Ticket sales cover less than 37% of the cost of producing live professional opera. Donations from our individual and business members make it possible for us to bring quality opera productions and events to mid-Vermont. We are grateful for the support of our members, sponsors, donors and the business community. The Opera Company of Middlebury is an independent organization solely responsible for its own fundraising and budget. OCM is a resident company of the Town Hall Theater and receives no financial support from the Theater.
Thank You !
– OCM Board of Directors
OCM is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
