On July 14, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced Austin Opera as one of 26 organizations in the US—and the only opera company—to take part in their Digital Accelerator Program. The $30 million program takes place over two years, and winners were chosen based on creative excellence, service to diverse communities, talented leadership, and efforts to improve digital capacity during the pandemic.

This prestigious new award will allow us to make strategic investments in our technology infrastructure and focus on continuing to reach and engage new audiences with dynamic programming.
