Friends of Emerald City Opera
Join the fun! Volunteer on a regular basis or only at one performance…or somewhere in between!
· Get Involved with the community?
· Meet fun, interesting people?
· Be part of the arts scene?
· Help bring world class artists to NW Colorado?
The Friends of Emerald City Opera support ECO by donating their time, enthusiasm and skills. Whether opera fans, community-minded groups or individuals or simply generous souls wanting to volunteer their time, the Friends are the heart of Emerald City Opera.
The Friends support ECO’s main production each August, as well as various fundraising events throughout the year. They fill a variety of important roles from ushering to managing the ticket office to hosting cast parties and writing thank you notes.
Our volunteer program is open to anyone who is reliable, outgoing and wants to get involved! Below is a sampling of ongoing and short-term volunteer opportunities:
· Office support
· Assist at Events
· Coordinate Friends gatherings
· Chair a Special Event production
The Friends of Emerald City Opera meet periodically throughout the year for fun social events and meetings, which often are opera-themed (such as “Opera Trivia”), and are great opportunities to strengthen the ECO community and keep abreast of what ECO has planned.

These emerging professionals will perform a SECOND OPERA PRODUCTION (2011: Hansel and Gretel) in Steamboat Springs, and favorite Scenes Concerts throughout our region (performances in CRAIG, WALDEN and STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO and SARATOGA, WY) in addition to participating in ECO’s mainstage production of Die Fledermaus, which features the talents of singers from the NY Metropolitan Opera and other major companies: Mark Thomsen, Katherine Krosevec, Kara Shay Thonson, David Malis, Irish Tenor Anthony Kearns, and Keri Rusthoi.
