San Francisco Opera Guild

Giving Voice to Potential

San Francisco Opera Guild believes that the life lessons drawn from creative expression are the foundation of confidence and integrity. Celebrating 75 years of offering enthralling, award winning K-12 education programs and engaging community outreach programs, our mission is to give voice to potential, extending the impact of opera and bringing it center stage into the life of the community.

At a time when funding is a challenge and the arts are hard to come by in many school settings, it is more important than ever to foster students' innovative and creative hearts and minds. We share our passion with today’s teachers. With the help of our donors and sponsors, we create programs that nurture the expressive nature in students, inspiring them to make positive choices and helping them grow to become conscientious, sensitive and culturally aware adults. Through our fundraising and San Francisco Opera Guild's education fund, "A Gift for All Seasons," more than 50,000 students in nearly 200 schools throughout Northern California find their voices each year, benefiting from the power of arts education as only opera can deliver.

Education and Outreach

Opera is much more than the sound of music. It’s a powerful educational tool that draws on all aspects of human experience and infuses them with passion. Whether you’re six or 96, San Francisco Opera Guild education programs will inspire and enthrall you.
