Mother's Day Songs and Shout-outs

Mother’s Day Songs and Shout-outs

MassOpera is thrilled to present our first virtual event: Mother’s Day Songs and Shout-outs!  With the ongoing global pandemic we wanted to find a way to not only share beautiful music with our audiences, but personalize the experience as well.  Since so many of us are isolated and unable to see our mother’s (and other loved ones) on Mother’s Day, we wanted to present something parents and children 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 mother–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 mom’s and loved ones all over the world, all the while supporting MassOpera AND working artists!

  • Watch the concert on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 10th @ 4 PM for FREE!
  • Submit a personalized shout-out of 30 words or less via our donation page by donating-what-you-can, and your shout-out (to your mother or other loved one) will be read during the concert! (Deadline of 5/5/2020).
  • Sponsor one of the five singers and one of their three arias/songs during the concert for $250 – and your chosen singer will dedicate your chosen aria/song to your mother (or other loved one) PLUS they will read out-loud your 100-word personalized shout-out!  ALL song/aria sponsorships are SOLD OUT!  Thank you all for your generosity.

TRIPLE YOUR DONATION

MassOpera’s former Board Clerk, Colombia Nunez Orozco, has generously offered to match donations brought in by MO’s Mother’s Day Songs and Shout-outs of up to $5,000!  MassOpera’s Board of Directors was so moved by Colombia’s generosity that they are also matching all donations up to $5,000 as well.  That means for every $1 you donate, MassOpera will receive $3 total!  And if we reach our goal of raising $5,000, we will in effect raise $15,000!
