Membership & Donations

We invite you to join OPERA PROPS in supporting the UW Opera program’s talented students and faculty.

Opera will continue to thrive as a living art form only if the supply of operatic voices is continually replenished. By contributing to the education of young singers, and building audiences better able to appreciate them, members of Opera Props help to ensure the future of opera.

Please join us!

UW Opera Props membership form 2018-19.  Please mail your contribution (payable to UW Opera Props) to: Kathleen Harker, 350 S. Hamilton St., #704, Madison, WI 53703

As an all-volunteer organization, Opera Props devotes every dollar in excess of expenses to the funding of awards for our talented students and to other projects that serve to encourage interest in productions of the University Opera.
