Thank You Opera in the Village Volunteers!

To our lovely Opera in the Village 2016 Volunteers,

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Thank you for contributing your time and efforts to help our festival be so great. You are truly what makes our festival happen. Without you, the foundation of everything we create would not be there. Every single job plays an important role to keeping our guest’s experience top priority and you all made it happen with flying colours. We’ve had incredible feedback from our patrons about the shows and the atmosphere which is telling to all of your efforts. Thank you for taking time out of your summer to help us. Thank you for making the trip down to the East Village and for being prepared for your jobs. Thank you for being so wonderful to work with. And Thank You for supporting Opera in your city.

Next year, we’ll do it all again!

Thank You for a Larger Than Life Season!


Thank You to everyone who helped make our 2015/2016 season amazing!

I’d like to send you all a huge Thank You for all your work this season. Our shows went off without a hitch, all our office needs were covered, our events were incredibly well received by all our guests, and our fundraisers helped bring in crucial funds for Calgary Opera programming. This is all thanks to your continued support and work throughout our seasons.

I am continually amazed at the work you all come together to accomplish and how we continue to execute our projects so smoothly. We are an incredibly fortunate organization to have such an all-star team of volunteers who believe in our cause and work hard to support Opera in Calgary. I know we say it all the time but we couldn’t do what we do without your support.  Thanks again for making our jobs a sinch!

As usual, if you have any comments you’d like to share about your experiences over the course of this season, please feel free to send me a message. I’d love to hear from you and chat with you about how we can continue to improve this program – volunteer@calgaryopera.com
