Tapestry Opera Receives Grant From OPERA America To Fund 12 Independent Companies

Tapestry Opera is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $35,000 USD in the third year of OPERA America’s Building Opera Audiences grant program. This program, made possible by the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, supports the efforts of North American opera companies to build informed, enthusiastic audiences for opera through innovative marketing projects. Tapestry Opera was granted funds to support 12 independent opera companies in Toronto through the budding Indie Opera T.O. movement. Under the leadership of Tapestry Opera’s Artistic Director Michael Mori, the group will be using the OPERA America grant to create a digital marketing campaign that will promote its member companies to a young, digitally savvy demographic—a model successfully pioneered by the New York Opera Alliance. Associated companies include Against the Grain Theatre, Opera 5, The Bicycle Opera Project, Essential Opera, Metro Youth Opera, Liederwölf, FAWN, Urbanvessel, Loose Tea Music Theatre, The Friends of Gravity and Opera After Hours, in addition to Tapestry Opera.
