We are eternally grateful for our generous supporters, who are the heart and soul of our mission. From the smallest act of kindness to the largest gestures of philanthropy, each donation is a cornerstone of our collective efforts to make world-class opera accessible to the people of Las Vegas. We sincerely thank our donors, whose support fuels our work every day. Your generosity is more than a gift; it's our sustenance. Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at the Opera!
Opera Las Vegas would like to especially thank our long-time Sustaining Trustees, patrons, opera lovers, and friends Chris and Anita Murray, who continue to secure the future of the company through their generous support, exceeding $300,000.
“The scale of this philanthropy is formidable for its magnitude alone and is all the more noteworthy coming from two people who have become close personal friends over their many years of support”, remarked General Director Jim Sohre. “This gift will greatly help sustain OLV’s unique position as Nevada’s professional company member in OPERA America. We are deeply grateful.”
Chris and Anita bring to Opera Las Vegas a keen sense of fiduciary responsibility. Drawing on their successful business practices and considerable experience at other non-profit organizations, the Murray's have worked closely with the board of directors assisting with the company’s planning and management of its financial affairs.
To honor their services as trustees over many years, Chris and Anita were presented with the National Opera Trustee Recognition Award by OPERA America in New York City on October 21, 2022.
