OPERA America, the national nonprofit service organization for opera, was recently inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame (ACMHF) in recognition of its significant service to the field. 

“It gives us great pleasure to welcome OPERA America into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame,” declared Executive Director Nina Perlove. “Through groundbreaking programs of exceptional quality, OPERA America has continued to invigorate opera creators and audiences, creating a lasting impact on our field,” she continued.
