As we celebrate our fifth anniversary this season, we look ahead to our next five years with three critical priorities:
  • Continued expansion and ongoing presentation of exceptional talent
  • Deepening our engagement and impact with current and future audiences
  • Ensuring administrative and financial stability

Baltimore Concert Opera currently derives approximately 38% of its yearly budget from ticket revenue. Because of this, private donations are incredibly important — essential, in fact. Your contributions enable us to continue to grow as a company, increasing the size of our staff and the quality of our productions. We, the staff and board of BCO, view you, our audience members, as partners in this endeavor. With your help, we’ve already taken extraordinary steps toward financial stability, including capital purchases of lighting equipment, supertitle projection equipment, and our own supertitle library. Ownership of these important items saves us a great deal of money each season by not having to rent them.

Please know that if you choose to support us financially, we look for every way to stretch those dollars. Thank you for your support!

Volunteers
There are many ways that you can volunteer….

  • Ushering at performances
  • Selling tickets
  • Stuffing envelopes
  • Picking up/returning lighting rentals
  • Picking up artists from airport
  • Offering a home-stay for an artist
  • Do you have a private room in your home where an out of town artist could comfortably stay for a few days? This is a great way to be involved, and get to know a fantastic singer!
  • Helping to prepare grant applications

Essentially, if you have a talent that you think we can use…we’d love to know about it. We are a small group of volunteers ourselves, and we believe that many hands make light work. If you see a way you can help, please e-mail suzanne@BaltimoreConcertOpera.com for more information.
