opas encore

OPAS Encore! is the fundraising arm of OPAS and a separate non-profit organization from OPAS. We are proud to support OPAS in its 40-plus year long mission to present world-class entertainment to the Brazos Valley.

Times are changing. The cost of presenting the caliber of artists and entertainment events to which OPAS patrons have become accustomed is rising every year. Now more than ever, it's important that we work together to raise the necessary funds to meet these expectations.

If you contributed to OPAS, you are already a member of OPAS Encore! If you haven't, we would love to have you join us, or work on our signature annual event, The OPAS Gala!

OPAS Encore supports OPAS programs:

  • OPAS JR
  • Special Programs for Local Children
  • Enhanced Programming
