The Friends of First Coast Opera provides volunteer support to the opera company through assistance with Box Office, Ushering, Membership, Publicity, Artist Hospitality, Fundraising Events, and other ways.  Annual membership dues are $20 per person.

The Friends sponsor at least two fundraisers each season.  One is a Fall luncheon at a local restaurant with FCO Artistic Director Curtis Tucker discussing the upcoming season and arias by performers.  The second is Evening of Arias, an annual Gala event at Marsh Creek Country Club.  These events raise funds for FCO’s future productions.

If you would like an “operatunity” to join the Friends, please complete and mail the application below, and with your dues, to Linda Yerrill, Friends Treasurer, 413 Fiddler’s Point Drive, St Augustine, Florida, 32080.  

Meetings are held every other month on Tuesday at 2:00 PM at Marsh Creek Country Club.  We would love to have you join us! For more information, contact Pattie Nolton at 904- 461-3561 or
