Connect with a Chorister

Connect With a Chorister is an opportunity for you to sponsor a San Diego Opera chorus member.  Enjoy an informative, personal relationship with your sponsored Chorister!

This program gives you a chance to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of our Chorus members and their art.
