Since 1978,

Sierra Chamber Opera has exposed over 1.6 million elementary school children in the Fresno, California area to the excitement and enlightenment of opera.

The company

has been supported entirely by grants and contributions, and produces a new show for each school year, putting music from the standard operatic repertoire into new storylines which are appropriate for our audiences. In our final year in operation, the company is not accepting donations at this time.

Sierra Chamber Opera

makes extensive use of volunteers, puts on more than 125 performances a year, each one of which reaches 300 children.
