Gulfshore Opera has its personal house because of $1 million present

The GO (Gulfshore Opera) Divas brought a program of  Renaissance carols and harmonies to three venues during the Christmas holidays in 2019. Themed concerts such as Italian or romantic songs are a substantial part of their repertoire.

George Bizet’s Carmen was a gypsy all her life. Steffanie Pearce’s Gulfshore Opera won’t be, because of a $1 million greenback present. 

The present, from board member Mary McVay of Bonita Springs, has enabled the corporate to lease a 1,500 square-foot multi-space headquarters at 9911 Corkscrew Highway,  Estero. Supporters gathered Friday, Nov. 5, to christen its 5 places of work and studio house in Suite 105 — room for operations, ticketing workplace and rehearsals for ensembles as much as 4 individuals.

McVay’s donation was truly made earlier than the COVID-19 pandemic struck. It was with  the specific goal of discovering a base from which the corporate may develop, mentioned Pearce, Gulfshore Opera founder and common director.

“However when COVID hit, we simply needed to put every little thing on pause. We have been in search of the fitting time to make this glorious information public,” she defined.
