Pacific Opera has a great network of friends and supporters who often help out in a volunteer capacity. They come from a broad range of backgrounds and with a broad range of motivations – from retired people wanting to “put something back into the community”, opera buffs who enjoy being involved in our productions, business people who want to share their expertise with a NFP, stay-at-home mums looking for an interesting activity, to young people looking to put work experiences on their CVs.

Contact us at info@pacificopera.com.au if you would like to become involved.
