Opera Goes to Church

In 2011, College Hill Presbyterian Church partnered with the Cincinnati Opera to bring Opera Goes to Church to our community. In 2019, we’ll be doing it again! Tracy Wilson, Director of Community Relations for Cincinnati Opera, reached out to us and we have already begun to work on the details. The last time Opera Goes to Church came to CHPC it was their most popular show ever. Tracy tells us that churches all over the city want the “CHPC model” of OGTC. February 11th,2019 we will be bringing the College Hill model to life again!

Participation is open to everyone and highly encouraged! We’ll be working with as many churches in College Hill as are willing to join together. If you can sing, the rehearsal schedule is below with details on that. If you can help with facilities, security, reception, or planning contact Mike Jorgensen ( to get involved. This year will be bigger and better than ever but we’ll need your help to make it happen! The box office will open this fall so keep your eyes on the announcements because tickets go fast!
