Every year, Gulfshore Opera (GO) plans a variety of social events throughout its three county service area. These events compliment the concert and opera production schedule by providing fun and friendly social opportunities.
Starting this year (season 9), these events will be grouped together under the name, GO Social. Typically held at private clubs and unique, intimate venues, GO Social events generally include food, wine and light entertainment. Patrons enjoy meeting the performers socially and making new friends in the GO community. Aside from having a good time, GO Social attendees will support the social mission of Gulfshore Opera “ to foster a sense of belonging within our diverse community through social engagement activities.” Proceeds from these events support the Harmony Choir, Talented Teens, summer camp and other GO youth development education programs.

The next Holiday Wine Tasting will be held Dec. 11 at FGCU’s Hoffman Family of Companies Wine Lab.

The GO Ambassadors, a volunteer guild of GO, organize a number of the social events. They will host the Celebrating the Holidays Wine Tasting at FGCU’s Hoffman Family of Companies Wine Lab on Dec. 11 at 4 p.m. This educational wine tasting concludes with light musical entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and dessert.
On Jan. 18, you can GO Social at the Porsche Party in Naples. Enjoy luxury cars, beautiful songs performed by Gulfshore Opera Professional Artists, quality wine and hors d’oeuvres in the elegant atmosphere of the Porsche dealership in Naples.
The ambassadors will conclude season 9 activities with their first Progressive Happy Hour on April 12. Eat, drink and be merry at two lovely homes in Pelican Landing. Entertainment will include cameo appearances by characters from the Don Giovanni cast.
In addition to the three ambassadors events, the 5th annual Style and Song Luncheon in partnership with Kay’s on the Beach returns to Grey Oaks Country Club on Feb. 28. Enjoy a delicious lunch while being serenaded by the handsome men of Gulfshore Opera and treated to an exclusive fashion show presented by Kay’s on the Beach. Jewelry sales and raffle tickets help fund the Harmony Choir after school program for at-risk youth.
Gulfshore Opera also offers the popular Taste of Opera series where guests enjoy elegant dinners with light entertainment in various private country clubs. At these events, GO Professional Artists delight diners with scenes from famous operas and classic musical theater between courses.
Jan. 31 marks the first Taste of Opera at the Hideaway Beach Club on Marco Island, followed by The Colony Bay Club in Estero and the Isles Yacht Club in Punta Gorda. GO Social events bring the community together by providing a memorable experience with old and new friends who share the common interests of high quality music and community support.
