The EHJ Memorial Fund Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation supporting and promoting opera in Western New York and especially the idea of a dedicated performing arts space for opera and ballet.
Our organization, now in it's 26th year, commits a significant amount of donations received to our established endowment fund and to grants for opera- related projects in Buffalo/Niagara, a city and region that deserves its very own dedicated opera and ballet facility.
As coordinators of National Celebrate Opera Week in Buffalo/Niagara we are proud to announce that the 2014 celebration was another grand success. This year marked the most successful NATIONAL OPERA WEEK
yet, smashing previous participation records. From Friday, October 24 through
Sunday, November 2, 2014, opera companies, schools and organizations across
North America presented performances, activities, contests and announcements in
37 states to celebrate opera.
We thank the numerous, talented musical organizations in our own area that was a part of the weeks celebration for 2014. We are proud to say the Buffalo and the Niagara region broke it's own record with increased numbers of events, screenings and performances. Bravissimo!
Our dedicated Board members volunteer their talents and time, and truly appreciate your generous response to help us reach our goals. Our young performers are also grateful for your generosity as they realize it is you making the difference for them and future generations.
We thank you for visiting our website and supporting our mission.
