Only with your help can we ignite a creative spark in students and give voice to potential.

At a time when music and art programs are disappearing from schools, the Guild’s Education Programs are more critical than ever. We depend on your support to develop programs that inspire students to make positive choices and become creative thinkers, innovators and conscientious, intelligent and culturally aware adults. Because of your vital contributions, every year more than 64,000 students in over 200 schools throughout Northern California receive the benefits of arts and music education.

Todd Hoyles and Georgina Chapman

Our community depends on the Guild’s award-winning education programs, and our corporate partners play a vital role.

Because opera incorporates drama, music, design, history, culture, language and literature, our education programs nurture the whole brain and help students develop ingenuity, creativity, conceptualization, collaboration and critical thinking skills.

Corporate partnership opportunities include sponsorships of specific programs or events, as well as in-kind support. Play a role. Inspire future creative thinkers, strategists and innovators.
