CHarleston Opera League

Charleston Opera League is much more than a social club. Its primary mission is to provide advocacy, social networking and fund raising in support of Charleston Opera Theater and its mission. In addition, it offers a place of fellowship for people passionate about opera, music and the arts and serves as a vehicle to actively grow support and interest in the great art form of opera within our beautiful city.


Circa 1735

This advocacy group is focused on young professionals and works to dispel the negative stereotypes surrounding opera. By hosting special events and social gatherings, it strives to create an energized enthusiasm within that community about opera and build a diversified audience to support the future foundation of Charleston Opera Theater.

Community involvement is the lifeblood of any performing arts organization. To find out more about these groups and how to participate, please contact Executive Artistic Director, Harold Meers at: or
