Become a Corporate Sponsor

Through a corporate partnership, your company can take advantage of various opportunities to reach a powerful, influential audience that has a vested in the community.

About two-thirds of adults who attend opera have a college or graduate degree, and more than half earn $75,000 or more, according to National Endowment for the Arts. About 59% of adults who attend opera are female. The opera is a great place to network and entertain with people who make things happen.

We have sponsorship opportunities to support our main stage programming, special events, and educational and community engagement programs. Our corporate partners receive prominent acknowledgement on all our season materials, such as our website, posters, show programs, newsletters, verbal recognition from the state and more. Tell us about your branding objectives and client entertaining needs by contact our Glow Development Director Leigh Miller at 864-982-1410.
