The Chair’s Circle

The Chair’s Circle is an important new initiative for Opera Queensland, led by the Chair, Linda Apelt

The Chair’s Circle

Launched in 2019, The Chair’s Circle provides a critical opportunity to build Opera Queensland’s reserves and create a sustainable future for opera throughout Queensland.

The Australia Council for the Arts has offered the company a wonderful opportunity to help us meet our reserves target. Through a matched funding scheme during 2019 – 2021, every dollar Opera Queensland generates in private income over our target will be matched by the Australia Council for the Arts up to a maximum of $500K.

Put simply, $500K can become $1M. 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our current members for their commitment, loyalty and generosity in supporting our campaign to build our reserves and make a significant contribution to the sustainable future of opera in Queensland. Opera Queensland welcomes you to The Chair’s Circle.

We are so excited to have you, our members of The Chair’s Circle, join us over the coming years, which we plan to be some of the most exciting in the Company’s history.

To join The Chair’s Circle, donors make an additional contribution per annum above their existing annual gift, across the period. In doing so, members help to secure the financial future of the company and opera in Queensland.

For further information please email or call 07 3735 3030.
