Don’t Miss: Opera Columbus Gala
On May 5, the 2022 Opera Columbus Gala, chaired by Willie and Katie Grové, will kick-off the 40th anniversary season for Opera Columbus with a night of dining, dancing, with entertainment from local, national, and international artists at the Ohio History Connection. The Opera Columbus Gala is an essential fundraiser that makes accessible and inclusive opera and music education possible throughout Columbus. Through sponsorship, ticket sales, and a live auction, this year’s black-tie gala has the goal of raising more than $150,000 and will honor the Dr. Arthur Bing, accomplished physician and generous philanthropist, for whom the Bing Cancer Center is named. The gala will launch the start of 40 Days of Opera, a six-week long celebration across the community bringing opera into libraries, museums, and more. Tickets start at $400, with VIP tickets available. For more information about Opera Columbus, visit operacolumbus.org.
