Friends of Midsummer Opera

Friends of Midsummer Opera was launched in November 2014.  It offers an opportunity for supporters of MSO to have a greater involvement in and to contribute towards the continuing success and development of MSO. 

Being a Friend of MSO also provides access to a number of exclusive benefits.  These include:

  • Priority Booking and the ability to reserve your preferred seats
  • The opportunity to attend selected rehearsals for productions you will be attending to see how our shows are actually put together
  • An invitation to our exclusive annual Friends of MSO Event
  • Regular updates and information about MSO, its productions and its artists
  • Acknowledgement of all Friends in programmes and on the MSO website

The first annual Friends of MSO Event was held on 10th May 2015 when Friends enjoyed an informative and entertaining talk from David Roblou about the history of MSO, followed by a recital of arias sung by two of our regular MSO soloists.  The afternoon concluded with a cream tea accompanied by Prosecco, with the chance to meet and talk to a number of artists and key members of MSO. 

Annual membership of Friends of MSO currently costs £30 for an individual or £50 for two people living at the same address.
