A letter from The Palmetto Opera Board of Directors

Dear Friends of The Palmetto Opera,

We write to you today with a new update regarding The Palmetto Opera’s Great Moments in Italian Opera concert and COVID-19. 

In adherence to our local and state officials and the most recent advice from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding all public events, we have decided to reschedule the Great Moments in Italian Opera performance originally scheduled at the Spears Recital Hall at Columbia College for Sunday, April 26, 2020 to a Sunday afternoon in October 2020.

We are in negotiation with Columbia College in selecting a specific Sunday matinee in October for the concert.

If you have already bought tickets for the April 26 Great Moments in Italian Opera concert, you need do nothing. The Palmetto Opera will honor those tickets for the October date. If for any reason you are unable to attend in October, you can certainly receive a refund. Simply email us your request at Also, you may donate the purchased price of your ticket back to The Palmetto Opera as a tax deductible gift to support our organization and musicians. Once again, simply email us, and we will credit the amount as a donation from you.

We understand that this is a constantly evolving situation and we thank you in advance for your patience. As always, the safety and health of our audience and musicians is our highest priority. We will continue to monitor events and also keep you informed through updates posted on our website, If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

All of us at The Palmetto Opera look forward to seeing you in October at the concert, but in the meantime, please stay healthy and safe.
