Valentine's Day Songs and Shout-outs

Valentine’s Day Songs and Shout-outs

MassOpera is thrilled to present our first major virtual event of 2021: Valentine’s Day Songs and Shout-outs!  With the ongoing global pandemic, and recently upsetting political events, we wanted to build on our previous Mother’s Day Concert, and find a way to not only share beautiful music with our audiences, but personalize the experience as well.  Are you not able to take your Valentine for a night on the town because of COVID?  Are you literally separated from your Valentine geographically?  Do you want to cheer up your best friend across the country?  No fear!  MassOpera is here to present something everyone can enjoy together (virtually), while still physically apart.  

In addition to enjoying gorgeous arias and songs from some of MassOpera’s most venerated artists, you will have the the ability to submit a personalized shout-out to your Valentine–your spouse, partner, or any loved one for that matter–with the singers reading these shout-outs throughout the virtual concert!  We are offering three ways to enjoy this concert, spread messages to your Valentine and loved ones all over the world, all the while supporting MassOpera AND working artists!

 

  • Watch the concert on Valentine’s Day, Sunday February 14th @ 2 PM for FREE!  You will need to register to receive the Zoom link!
  • Submit a personalized shout-out of 30 words or less via our registration/donation page by donating-what-you-can, and your shout-out (to your Valentine) will be read during the concert! (Deadline of 2/11/2021).
  • Sponsor one of the five singers and one of their three arias/songs during the concert for $250 via our registration/donation page – and your chosen singer will dedicate your chosen aria/song to your Valentine PLUS they will read out-loud your 100-word personalized shout-out! (Deadline of 2/11/2021)

DOUBLE YOUR DONATION

MassOpera’s Board of Directors have generously offered to match donations brought in by MO’s Valentine’s Day Songs and Shout-outs of up to $5,000!   That means for every $1 you donate, MassOpera will receive $2 total!  And if we reach our goal of raising $5,000, we will in effect raise $10,000!
