A message from our President:
Thank you for joining us at the Simsbury Light Opera Company. I am proud to have been selected by the company as President for our 2023-2024 season. We hope you will join us--onstage, back stage, or in our audience--as we embark on our nautical voyage upon the H.M.S. Pinafore.
SLOCO has been a staple of the Farmington Valley since 1945, and we look forward to serving the Simsbury community and beyond for many years to come. To that end, we hope you will consider supporting us in our Annual Fund, as a Patron/Contributor, through a legacy bequest, or through a one-time or recurring donation. Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated. It helps us maintain our rehearsal space ("Basingstoke"), build and paint our sets, costume our performers, rent our performance space, and compensate our talented instrumentalists and artistic/music directors.
In addition to our April 2024 mainstage production of Pinafore, be on the lookout for other regional programming, including:
* November 7, 2023: Emanuel Synagogue, West Hartford
* November 19, 2023: Elmwood Community Center, West Hartford
* December 5, 2023, Antonio's Restaurant, Simsbury
We enjoying sharing our music with the community, and if you wish for us to perform at your venue, please reach out to us.
The stories told by Gilbert, to the music of Sullivan, and other light opera, are timeless. As a Savoyard myself for 25 years, I find their wit and composition as something that makes a day better. I hope that you join us in helping spread these wonderful works with the community.
"I must wander to and fro; But wherever I may go, I shall never be untrue to thee!"
