For over 50 years, UCI Vocal Arts has upheld a tradition of performance excellence and instruction by esteemed teachers.  With a commitment to high standards for productions, creativity in our technical training, and innovation in our academic work; UCI’s opera program empowers students to explore as they grow as vocal artists.


Make a Difference

Become a member of the Opera Guild to ensure that the opera program and its stellar productions will continue to be offered at UCI. Opera Guild members provide crucial support to the opera productions, which could not go on without contributions. UCI’s Opera productions are complex collaborations between vocal students and the orchestra, and require costumes, sheet music, and stage production.

Opera Guild members are passionate about CTSA’s mission to offer enriching opera experiences for students and audiences alike. Member support is the lifeblood of this program, as each annual production has a defined budget. We invite you to invest in UCI’s Opera Guild, and join us in building a brilliant future for opera at UCI.

Gifts to the Opera Guild help us continue our mission to:

  • Cover costs to produce a high-caliber opera production each year.
  • Give students better access to vocal coaches and the opportunity to practice on-stage. 
  • Develop future opera audiences
