The Orpheus Legacy Society

Simple Gift. Powerful Legacy.

There are many ways you can help Palm Beach Opera now and in the future. In addition to providing invaluable support for productions, educational and community engagement programs, and artist training through our annual fund, you can help continue our work through a planned gift.

The Orpheus Legacy Society recognizes those individuals who are supporting Palm Beach Opera in their wills or estate plans. When you join, you make a lasting mark on your community.

You can play an important role in contributing to Palm Beach Opera’s artistic and financial future while at the same time meeting your financial needs and objectives. You and your advisors, along with Palm Beach Opera’s team, can determine the right plan for you.

Why do we support Palm Beach Opera?

“We consider our Opera the crown jewel of our local cultural endeavors. Cultural events, especially in hard times, are needed to uplift the human spirit. It reminds us of what has been, and what will come again. It gives us hope and joy.”

Sigrid and Hans Baumann,
Palm Beach Opera Subscribers, Donors, and Legacy Society Members
