Tea With Opera (2014/2015 Season)


The Oakville Opera Guild holds Tea with Opera meetings monthly on Tuesday afternoons at 1.30 p.m. at the Oakville Central Library, Navy Street, and on three Friday evenings a year (locations to be announced). Each meeting concludes with a delightful tea.

Visitors are welcome to attend an introductory meeting on payment of a $10 fee that goes towards a scholarship for a student attending the Faculty of Music, U. of T., and an annual donation to the Canadian Opera Company. Membership in the Guild ($25 per annum) is required in addition to the $10 fee for attendance at subsequent meetings.

For information on locations for the Friday evening meetings, please call Joan at 905 827 5678 or Mo at 905 634 6977, and come or join us at our upcoming 2015 events:
