The June 2013 Sacred in Opera Newsletter has been posted. We have sad news to announce in the loss of a leader in this field, Dr. Carl Gerbrandt. We pay tribute to him in this issue, not only by including his impressive credentials and referring to his body of work, but by acknowledging his huge influence in promoting sacred opera as a separate and viable genre in its own right.
The National Opera Association offers opportunities for everyone in the world of opera to work together for the advancement of quality in performance and pedagogy. Whether professional or amateur, pedagogue or performer, staff member or volunteer, you can serve the cause of opera through your membership in NOA.
NOA holds an annual convention featuring performances, panels, workshops, and other continuing-education opportunities for opera educators, professionals, and students. Find out about our recent January, 2013, convention in Portland, OR or learn about next year's planned convention in New York (joint partnership with NATS and OPERA America).
