ET Now News Headlines: Keith Arsenault As stories on stage unfold, they are invariably carried on their journey by the ebb and flow of light.
St Petersburg Opera Guild (SPOG) is a service organization in support of St. Pete Opera Company that works to educate and build an appreciative audience for opera, especially with the children and youth of the community. The Guild supports opera education in public and private schools for the middle school age audience, as well as attendance at St. Petersburg Opera mainstage productions for high school students. Fantastic response from this young audience keeps us enthusiastically continuing these programs each year.
Our other major project is the SPOG Vocal Competition that takes place each year in the early Spring. It’s a wonderful music-filled competition. All competitors receive feedback from professionals, and the winners are awarded scholarships in support of their studies.
The Guild has raised funds through their social activities; primarily at their annual Silver Bells December event.
