Organization Celebrates 61 years of supporting Opera in South Florida

The Young Patronesses of the Opera, one of Miami’s oldest arts organizations, is celebrating its 61st year, and will host a dazzling night of dinner and dancing at its “An Aria to America” Gala at the Riviera Country Club in Coral Gables on Saturday November 5, 2016. Attendees will enjoy a cocktail hour that includes a silent auction and entertainment, followed by dinner and dancing to the sounds of the Drew T Band. Master of Ceremonies for this historic event will be one of Florida Grand Opera’s leading opera experts, Justin Moss. Marianne Kircher & Paula Barrera Scheer are serving as this year’s Gala Chairs.

Founded in 1955, YPO is a volunteer group of 100 dedicated women who advocate for music and opera education to children in South Florida. Proceeds raised at “An Aria to America” will fund music and opera educational programs. Every year, YPO presents a workshop for more than 500 Girl Scouts, and a professional development workshop on opera in the classroom for Miami-Dade and Broward County teachers. YPO also brings professional children’s opera performances to more than 30,000 elementary students annually. In addition, YPO also presents a national voice competition for aspiring young opera singers.
