Opera Quest’s 2017-18 performing season and fiscal year was a resounding success!

  • We performed at 18 public elementary schools in seven different Clark County districts, reaching approximately 4,000 3rd through 5th graders

  • We expanded our reach to Cowlitz County with a performance at Yale Elementary

  • Just after the end of our fiscal year, we held a highly successful fundraising event: Wine, Women & Song!

  • We launched a redesigned website

  • We attracted generous support in this year’s Give More 24 and through more than one Beaches/Warehouse 23’s Cashback Day

  • We received another $1,000 grant from the Camas-Washougal Community Chest

  • We performed “Opera the Great!” for the Vancouver Boys and Girls Club

  • Donations totaled $17,991, placing us in solid financial shape for a successful 2018-19 year

Under our new president, Barbara Choltco, the Opera Quest board is pursuing these goals for the coming year and beyond:

  • Develop school followup offerings, possibly including an Artist in Residence program

  • Expand further into Cowlitz County

  • Develop programming for senior communities

  • Begin exploring a middle school show
