Why Support MDLO?

Maryland Lyric Opera, a “regional” opera company with uncommon goals, is committed to presenting quality operatic productions that feature promising young artists from the region with established professionals for mutually rewarding collaborations focused on musical and dramatic integrity of the highest degree. The MDLO Young Artist Institute and High School Mentorship programs were created to ensure that the next generation of singers are exposed to, and have the opportunity to learn from, experienced opera professionals dedicated to preserving vocal artistry from an age when the individuality and liberty of expression of the singer were of primary importance. The company currently produces two main-stage productions each season including performances at The Music Center at Strathmore and The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center’s intimate Kay Theatre. MDLO is further dedicated to bringing live performances to those more vulnerable and underserved populations without access to professional performing arts organizations through its Sharing Music, Sharing Love recital series, with the help of past partner organizations like Children’s National Medical Center, Washington, DC and Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore.  

There are many ways to support MDLO, whether you want to become an individual Member, support our MDLO Orchestra, support emerging talent through the MDLO Young Artist Institute, or sponsor a production. Being an MDLO member gives you behind-the-scenes access, special and unique experiences and priority booking for your favorite MDLO performances. Join us with a Corporate Membership for a package especially designed for your business.
