About the Albuquerque Opera Guild
A wonderful year has been planned with community engagement programs and opportunities to inform and inspire the children and adults of the Greater Albuquerque and Rio Rancho communities.

The Albuquerque Opera Guild promotes these opportunities through membership, fundraising, community engagement, and non-partisan advocacy for the arts community. We bring programs that have been developed and nurtured by The Santa Fe Opera to our community at large. We provide fun, interesting activities and events for our youth and families, as well as adult learning and social outreach. The education and community engagement programs offered during the coming year are designed to build an appreciation of the spectacular art-form of opera and the love of music. As most of the programs offered are free-of-charge, some activities and events will require an admission to help us continue to bring the programming to you in the future.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Albuquerque Opera Guild – there are great opportunities for volunteers to get involved!

Albuquerque Guild Board Meetings
These are held on the third Thursday of each month at 5:00pm - Members are always welcome to attend monthly Board meetings; call (505) 792-6869 Ext. 100 for more information.
