The Amici di Merola ("Merola Friends") are a group of volunteers who are passionate about opera and the young artists on the road to successful operatic careers. The Amici bring energy, generosity and kindness to the work they do for Merola. We love to find ways to help and encourage the Merola artists, especially during the summer program.
Our efforts fall into two categories:
By supporting Merola, we ensure the future of the operatic art form. As we get to know the Merolini and offer many kinds of help and encouragement we make an unforgettable impact on the Merolini. Some lifelong friendships have been formed in this process. Numerous Amici members keep in touch with former Merolini over many years, visit with them when they return to San Francisco and, as Amici, travel to opera performances around the world. Working together, the Amici have a lot of fun and the satisfaction of knowing our work is valuable.
Amici members are expected to be active and helpful participants in the events we offer. Members may, alternatively, make donations towards purchasing food for the picnics.
We hold organizational meetings at 6 PM on the fourth Tuesday evening of each month from March through October, with other meetings as necessary. If you would like to become part of this enthusiastic group:
