Support APU Opera

We invite you to join our growing list of APU Opera supporters! Your gifts to APU Opera support the education and on-going training of our future artists and leaders in the field of opera and classical music. Your annual gift will also ensure an increasing number of productions, guest artists, and special workshops. Contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated and all contributions are tax deductible. You may make a one-time gift or set up annual giving (see below).

Honorary Named Opera Scholarships

Another way to give to APU Opera is to establish an Honorary Named Opera Scholarship. These are annual scholarships established in honor of the donor or in honor of a beloved family member, mentor, teacher, or even a favorite performing artist. $1,500 is the minimum amount for an Honorary Named Opera Scholarship. It may continue annually as the donor wishes, however it is most beneficial to our students to establish a scholarship with at least a five to ten year commitment. The donor may not specify the recipient; all recipients are selected by the opera staff on the basis of artistic merit and financial need.

For any questions on establishing an Honorary Named Opera Scholarship, please contact Melanie Galloway, DMA, artistic director of opera, at mgalloway@apu.edu or (626) 815-6000, Ext. 3587.
