Gulfshore Opera has its personal house due to $1 million present

George Bizet’s Carmen was a gypsy all her life. Steffanie Pearce’s Gulfshore Opera is not going to be, due to 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 Street,  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 objective 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 part on pause. We have been in search of the precise time to make this excellent information public,” she defined.
