The Opera on the Avalon Guild is a volunteer organization committed to the growth and success of opera in Newfoundland. Guild volunteers work side-by-side with artists, company members, and staff to enhance the value of OOTA’s productions. Membership in the Volunteer Guild offers the chance to give something back to the arts community while providing an opportunity to develop new skills and build on existing experience and knowledge. We welcome your involvement, no matter what your time commitment.
