Art Administrator Hero of the Month
Connecting and promoting in Houston
Opera in the Heights supports opera singing artists as they work to pursue a career in opera (and has been doing so for over twenty years). At a time when many artists are forced to turn away from their passion for lack of opportunities, Opera in the Heights is there to provide a professional environment and the meaningful principal role experiences that they are seeking.
Opera in the Heights is one of sixteen organizations participating in the Engage Houston’s current Peer Connect, a professional development program for small-to-midsize arts and culture organizations. The program is designed to strengthen participants’ organizational effectiveness and sustainability.
We love this recent article from the Houston Chronicle, which highlights Executive Director Paige Myrick and her role in creating the Houston Arts Pass, a program allowing audience members to subscribe to a number of different arts organizations for sampling different programs and performances. This new program is a contribution to the outstanding arts and culture ecosystem of Houston, and we are so proud of Myrick. Our congratulations to her and everyone at Opera in the Heights and the Houston Arts Pass!
