#GivingTuesday is a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.  Please join us in support of  the arts in education.

Why should you support this program?  In the last six seasons, Knoxville Opera has served our community with free in-school performances which have been enthusiastically applauded by over 50,700 students. Our free in-school outreach program gives our children a chance to learn about and actually experience opera. This challenges their senses and provides exposure to a world-renowned art-form.
