Once Gifted a Trip to the Opera, Board Member Sylvia Lindsey Now Gives Back

The pharmacist was on the verge of what would become a nasty divorce. Needless to say, his wife would not be joining him for Tosca that night at the Metropolitan Opera. So he turned to a friend to accompany him: future San Francisco Opera board member Sylvia Lindsey. Now in her 70s, Lindsey remembers the circumstances well. Because that would be her first night at the opera—a spark that launched a passion, as well as a tradition of service.

Our voices join in the call for justice and an end to institutionalized racism, hate, and intolerance. We acknowledge opera’s own troubled history and are committed to listening, learning, and being a force for change in our industry, starting with ourselves. #BlackLivesMatter

Tenor George Shirley has always been aware of the fact that, for many Americans, his skin color alone has made him the object of hatred. Back in the early days of his career—when he was completing basic training on his way to a position in the U.S. Army Chorus—he knew some of his fellow soldiers were uncomfortable sharing the barracks with a Black man in uniform. He heard the slurs as their cars rolled by.
