A letter from The Palmetto Opera Board of Directors

Dear Friends of The Palmetto Opera,

We write to you today with an 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 postpone the Great Moments in Italian Opera performance originally scheduled for Sunday, April 26, 2020 at the Spears Recital Hall at Columbia College.

We are in negotiation with Columbia College in the hope that we can reschedule the concert for a Sunday matinee in the second half of June.

If you have already bought tickets for the April 26 Great Moments in Italian Opera concert, The Palmetto Opera will honor those tickets for the June date. If for any reason you are unable to attend, you can certainly receive a refund, or you can donate your tickets back to The Palmetto Opera to support our organization and musicians. We will contact you in four weeks when we hope there is more information available and can finalize the new concert date.

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 at our next event, but in the meantime, please stay healthy and safe.


Dr. Peter Barton

Chair, Board of Directors
