Opera Goes to Church and Temple!™
Opera Goes to Church! ™, a summer evening of gospel, sacred, jazz, and classical music, is a collaborative partnership between Cincinnati Opera and selected churches in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. These special community concerts feature internationally acclaimed artists from Cincinnati Opera’s mainstage summer season, dynamic congregational choirs, local youth performers, and some of the hottest jazz musicians in the region and the country.
Opera Goes to Church!™ has become one of the most anticipated summer events for Cincinnati Opera’s partner congregations and beyond. Each concert has been a one-of-a-kind, uniquely crafted event where the audience and artists find inspiration in the power of music to bring people together and create collective joy.
