Membership & Donations

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

Won’t you help us make a difference?
With the help of UW Opera Props members’ donations in 2018/19, we were able to contribute a total of $16,750, of which $16,000 were in awards to seven voice and opera students in the Mead Witter School of Music at UW-Madison and $750 to British early music scholar/editor/publisher Clifford Bartlett for his royalty fee for L’incoronazione di Poppea (Nov. 2018). Since 2011, Opera Props has made contributions totaling nearly $200,000 to the School of Music!
