Why Join the Encore Society

The Encore Society acknowledges the generosity of those individuals who have included Opera Philadelphia in their estate plans as an important philanthropic commitment to opera’s future in Philadelphia. Not only can your gift provide potential exemptions from estate, capital gains, and/or income taxes*, but in making this commitment, you can be confident that you will be enabling the future of opera in Philadelphia.

As a member of the Encore Society, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • An invitation to the annual Encore Society luncheon featuring stars from an Opera Philadelphia production

  • Recognition in the Opera performance program

  • An invitation to Season Prelude – an annual event and reception featuring select arias from the upcoming season

*Please consult your financial and/or legal advisors to determine which type of gift is best for you and for legal requirements regarding these gifts.
