Other Ways to Support Ash Lawn Opera

Housing Hosts

We are very fortunate to have a professional opera company in our community, and its success is dependent on support from our volunteer Board, Guild, and—critically—Housing Hosts, who welcome our artists and production staff into their homes each year. Click here to join our family of hosts.

The Guild

The Guild is a group of dedicated volunteers who provide support to Ash Lawn Opera through fundraising, music and education programs, and hospitality. The Guild provides support for the company's two fundraising events, the Spring Gala and A Taste of Ash Lawn Opera. The Education Committee of the Guild organizes the Artist-in-Residence, Opera Connects for Teachers, KidsFest, Student Dress Rehearsal, and Library Programs for area children. Throughout the year the Guild sponsors trips, luncheons, lectures, and performances by professionals and Young Artists that enlighten and entertain both the seasoned music lover and the novice.
