Cultivating an opera community | online panel discussion

The Dallas Opera’s Hart Institute for Women Conductors provides a platform for conversation with panelists from different sectors and disciplines who will discuss the roles, impact, and representation of women in the arts, business, and community from historic, academic, and personal perspectives.

On November 17, Elizabeth is part of the guest panelists who will discuss the topic: "Cultivating an opera community".

Opera thrives on community, making community engagement essential for a flourishing arts organization. Civic practice, education, audience development, outreach, and engagement require different approaches when developing an opera base. Panelists discuss the various ways to cultivate a community of opera-goers, lovers, and creators. There will be an opportunity for audience questions.
