Bringing Music Back to L.A. Schools.

In Los Angeles, where music education in schools is becoming a rarity, VOPA is stepping up to fill the void. Research, like the study from Professor Christopher Johnson at the University of Kansas, clearly shows the benefits of strong music programs in enhancing students' skills in subjects like English and math.

At VOPA, we're all about making sure that students, no matter their background or financial situation, get the chance to discover and enjoy music and theater. It's about bringing the arts back into education in a fun and engaging way.

Growing the Fruits of Our Community

Opera Tree.

The heart of VOPA's outreach efforts symbolizes our deep-rooted commitment to the community. Opera Tree's initiatives ensure that the transformative power of live music theater reaches everyone, especially those who might otherwise miss out on these enriching experiences.

It has been the company’s goal, from our very first production almost 20 years ago, to reach out to the most under-served members of our community in any way we can. We began by giving complimentary tickets to any person who couldn’t afford them. That small gift has grown, blossomed, and eventually become the fruit that has fed hundreds of our community’s most underprivileged members, including children, families, and seniors. Fortunately, much like a blossoming tree, VOPA has grown strong, extending its branches into our community, with each branch of the Opera Tree bearing fruit.

About the Opera Tree

“Opera Tree” represents our symbiotic relationship with the community. Its branches, laden with the fruits of art, reach out to nourish the San Fernando Valley. The tree’s trunk, formed by two hands clasping each other, signifies our foundational belief in mutual support and collaboration. As VOPA grows, so too do its roots, delving deeper into the community, sustained by local leaders, businesses, and individuals.

Performing at a senior center

Enriching the lives of seniors.

For over a decade, VOPA has been a source of joy and cultural enrichment for senior communities. Our concerts, featuring a range of genres from opera to jazz, bring the magic of live performance to retirement communities and senior groups, enhancing their lives with the beauty of music.
