Society of Angels

These are the distinguished members who have left their mark with Cincinnati Opera.

As a member of the Society of Angels, the commitment of a donor serves as a foundation for the future for Cincinnati Opera. Th­eir support allows us to climb higher, strive further, and reach for our creative and artistic ideals.

The Society of Angels' members are distinguished men and women committed to the continued excellence of Cincinnati Opera, which can only be achieved through private financial support and the building of the endowment fund. The Society seeks to:

  • Increase the level of support from friends of the Opera.
  • Provide a unique framework within which planned gifts can be made and recognized
  • Stimulate interest and involvement in the future of Cincinnati Opera

Cincinnati Opera acknowledges with deep gratitude the generosity of the following donors who have remembered and notified the company of their planned gifts.
