Announcing the Launch of The New York Opera Alliance!
Interviewed on NYC’s local classical music station WQXR, The show is called Operavore, with Naomi Lewin.
“A new organization designed to serve New York City’s small, grassroots opera companies launches this week.
The New York Opera Alliance wants to help independent companies and producers share marketing, fundraising, costumes and other production resources. Nineteen companies have signed up so far, from veteran groups like the Bronx Opera Company to newcomers such as On Site Opera.
The idea for the New York Opera Alliance began with Peter Szep, a conductor, and Cori Ellison, who’s on the faculty of the American Lyric Theater. Ellison said one of the group’s first steps was to create a website where the companies can share their schedules.”
