Join our new Discussion Forums!

Discussion Forums
NOA will be hosting periodic informal discussion groups to engage and facilitate member discussions on a variety of topics of relevance to our members. We're happy to announce the first two sessions in this series:

⋄ Opera on a “Buck-Fifty”

Informal discussion group for NOA colleagues to discuss challenges and solutions unique to smaller schools and small-budget opera programs, especially issues faced during these challenging times. Moderated by NOA President, Benjamin Brecher.

Friday March 5, 4:30-6:00PM ET


⋄ Diversity in Opera: Visions, Realities, Casting and Repertoire

Join us and participate in a discussion of casting roles in opera and how it can and must continue to strive to be more inclusive. NOA Board Member Michael Ching will start the discussion by asking some colleagues to tell their stories.

Wednesday March 10, 4:30-6:00PM ET


Both webinars are free and open to NOA members, but registration is required in order to receive the Zoom link to participate. Please note that to preserve a sense of informal conversation among colleagues, these sessions will not be recorded. If you are unable to attend, we hope you can join future sessions on these and other topics that are of ongoing interest to our members.

Suggestions for future discussion forums are welcome!
