Valley Friends of Arizona Opera

Founded in 2011, Valley Friends of Arizona Opera is an exciting group of opera lovers who love to socialize with one another and who perform volunteer work for Arizona Opera. Valley Friends serves Phoenix and the surrounding cities in the valley. Membership to the league offers unique access to both league parties and Arizona Opera events and fundraising socials. Wine and Cheese parties plus two large opera parties per year yield the opportunity to hear professional opera singers up close and to enjoy the company of fellow opera lovers. For a list of upcoming events, please visit the Valley Friends page at, email or visit the lobby table at the next opera.
