The Palm Beach Opera Guild is a group of women and men dedicated to supporting Palm Beach Opera by raising funds for Palm Beach Opera Studio and Opera Rehearsal 101.

Palm Beach Opera Studio is a seven-month training program that fosters the skills
high school students will need to pursue a successful music career in college and beyond. The Palm Beach Opera Studio program is demanding; the learning experience is exceptional and participants are held to a high professional standard.

Opera Rehearsal 101 is a unique opportunity for middle and high school students to catch a glimpse of the opera production process during a live working rehearsal before opening night.
