A Nod to Our Neighbors: A Benefit Concert for Help!ComeHome!

Dear Friends, 

For those of you familiar with Help!ComeHome!, you know that for over a decade our volunteers and board members have served US citizens throughout the nation from countless backgrounds, traditions, and socioeconomic stations. In spite of these differences, all of us stand united in the common thread of humanity. No matter what our background, each of us has experienced joy, pain, loss, love, the beauty of a cool breeze on a hot day, the comfort of a familiar face in a new and strange setting...

The Boston Opera Collaborative has graciously partnered with Help!ComeHome! to program an evening of music that celebrates these universal experiences and emotions. Please join soprano Sarah Joyce Cooper and violinists Thomas Cooper and Roland Clark for a concert of Beethoven, Strauss, Turina, Jazz, and African American Spirituals. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Help!ComeHome! and the communities it serves throughout the US and Navajo Nation. 

We hope to see you there!

About the Boston Opera Collaborative

Boston Opera Collaborative offers fresh opera experiences that put our audiences in close contact with the power of the human voice. Our year-round performance calendar features Boston’s brightest young talent in energetic and intimate productions of repertoire ranging from canon favorites to Boston premieres. We bring opera into unexpected places and find new ways to tell familiar stories, inviting the uninitiated to see their first opera and welcoming the lifetime fan to engage with our unique brand of music theater.

Boston Opera Collaborative’s roster artists come to us from the nation’s top conservatories, making Boston their home as they pursue the next stage of their careers. BOC provides performance and outreach opportunities, continuing education and professional development resources. We also provide opportunities for singers and others interested in arts administration to serve in an administrative capacity in one of our operational departments, from Production to Development, Marketing to Finance. Through this business model, they gain valuable hands-on experience in administrative skills that support their future careers in the arts.
