Why should you give to the Indie Opera Podcast?

We began as a conversation between two opera lovers/performers (conductor Peter Szep and tenor Noah Lethbridge) in 2011. With the mission of educating the public about the work of smaller opera companies both in the United States and abroad, they began creating monthly episodes featuring different organizations, artists, or ideas.

Since that first episode, two new hosts have joined (mezzo-soprano Brooke Larimer and stage director Walker Lewis), and the podcast has recorded dozens of episodes on a wide variety of topics and interviewed important composers, librettists, producers, and performers from all across the opera industry.

The total cost for producing the season is $24,000. While advertising covers some of the costs associated with production, we are dependent on the support of donors like you to continue to provide a valuable and entertaining service to the opera community with humor and honesty.

Support the Indie Opera Podcast, named one of the top ten classical music podcasts by, to ensure that we can keep producing episodes. Your donation is fully tax-deductible to the extent the law allows, thanks to the generous fiscal sponsorship from BELTÀ: Building Empowered Lives Through Art.
