Educational Outreach


For over 40 years, Tri-Cities Opera’s Resident Artists have been venturing to schools all over New York State and Northern Pennsylvania to present Children’s Operas and concerts.

Named as a nod to Binghamton’s famous carousels, the program reaches as many as 20,000 children each year.

Opera Chorus

Tri-Cities Opera is fortunate to have a select volunteer chorus. These dedicated and talented people are chosen by audition at the beginning of each season. Joining the Tri-Cities Opera Chorus ensures a unique and rewarding experience. It is an ideal opportunity to better individual vocal technique, musicianship, and knowledge of foreign languages, while receiving first-hand stage experience from some of the industry’s most sought-after professionals. Tri-Cities Opera Chorus members also enjoy complimentary tickets to each mainstage production, as well as invitations to special dinners and all after-parties.

Don’t Sing? Tri-Cities Opera also uses Supernumeraries (non singing extras) in almost every production.  Please contact us at to volunteer as a “super”.
