Since 1994-95, Opera Volunteers International has honored over 80 individuals and support groups who have made outstanding contributions to their opera companies and to their communities. Partners in Excellence recognition also may be extended to support groups to recognize an important milestone or achievement. Recipients of a Partners in Excellence Award are recognized for their achievements at a meeting of the membership at an OVI Conference, and in OVI’s various publications.
Each Partner in Excellence has been recommended, in writing, by the president of an OVI-member support group with supporting recommendations from the opera company’s General Director and Board of Trustees, and confirmation by OVI’s Board of Directors. Please contact the Member Services chair (memberservices@operavolunteers,org) for more information or an application.
