Sing2Me

Sing2Me

Opera Memphis is proud to relaunch its nationally recognized "Sing2Me" program of mobile operas! Beginning May 18, Opera Memphis can come to your neighborhood or place of work to perform a themed concert for you and your neighbors or co-workers. For $450, Opera Memphis will sing a concert tailored just for you! For $600, we will sing a concert for you, and donate a concert for first responders or a neighborhood that could not otherwise afford a performance.

How does it work?

Send an email to sing2me@operamemphis.org with your location, contact info, and some possible dates and times in the next several weeks. Also let us know which of the following three themes you would like:

Opera's Greatest Hits: a selection of all-time greats by some of the best composers to ever write for the operatic stage!

Opera Goes to Broadway: a lineup of gems from every era of American Musical Theater!

Springtime in Memphis: songs from a variety of genres celebrating this season of natural beauty and rebirth!

We will then contact you to work out specific details regarding date and time and to let you know about any technical needs (access to power outlets, parking spots, etc).

On the day of the show, we will pull up with "La Scala Piccola", our mobile opera stage, and sing our hearts out!

What does it cost to sponsor a performance?

The cost of sponsoring an hour long event is $450, which allows us to cover our costs and ensure all of the artists get paid. We can do longer or shorter programs as well; just let us know what you would like, and we can discuss what is possible!

Want to help spread opera even further? For an additional $150 donation, we will perform a concert for first-responders or for a community that could not otherwise afford a performance! 

Can you do this type of performance safely?

Yes! We have worked with multiple agencies to create a method to allow everyone to stay safe while reveling in the glory of the human voice. For example, no artist needs to come within 6 feet of any other artist, and no piece of equipment is touched by more than one person over the course of the show. We even have disposable covers for our microphones!

Please note that we will only perform in areas that allow for safe social distancing between artists and audience, and between audience members themselves. If that is not possible, we cannot ask our artists to proceed.
