Giving Voice to Opera

Membership

Denver Lyric Opera Guild’s mission is to encourage and support young singers and provide continuing education for DLOG members in the appreciation and knowledge of opera. 

The Guild is:

A non-profit membership organization which provides:

  • Financial support for young Colorado singers through Grants to college opera programs and opera companies and to winners of our Annual Competition
  • Opportunities for members and guests to experience the joy of opera through Opera on Tuesdays, our annual Competition for Singers and Opera Tours.

A Call to Support the 2021 Competition

For the safety of our members, judges and singers, we will not have a live audience for the 2021 Competition.

The Master Class and Finals will be live-streamed and recorded so all members and opera enthusiasts throughout the world can view and hear our young singers online. The recordings will be available on the DLOG website and through YouTube at a later date.

We need your help to produce this groundbreaking event. There will be additional production costs to bring the Competition to you in the safety of your home. Your donation will help DLOG safely hold this signature event to support our young singers. They are counting on us!

Members, please consider a tax-deductible donation today!

“One of the first competitions I participated in was Denver Lyric Opera Guild. Through the encouragement and feedback of the visiting judges and financial support of the Guild, I had the means to continue to pursue my “opera addiction.” As young artists, we encounter so many hardships, disappointments and setbacks. But because of DLOG, when these blows came down, I still had the means and encouragement to push through.”
