Opera on the James produces two fully staged opera events with orchestra each season in the fall, and a mid-winter opera activity of either a concert, short opera, or Cabaret. The Opera also serves the needs of our neighbors through a community outreach program of performances and lectures in schools, community venues, and in the opera building at 701 Main Street.

The Tyler Young Artist Program, a quartet of singers chosen through national auditions, performs the majority of the community programs.

The Studio Artist Program provides special coachings to a quartet of Lynchburg area young opera singers who in turn, share their talents with school children throughout Central Virginia.

The Biennial Voice Contest reaches out to college-age singers providing financial awards to the winners and notes from the judges to all applicants.
