Pittsburgh Opera New Music Fund

Part of the 80th Anniversary Campaign
Celebrating the Legacy and Vision of Christopher Hahn


Pittsburgh Opera is built on traditions and repertoire that define the art form. From Mozart to Puccini and Verdi to Wagner, Pittsburgh Opera regularly showcases perennial favorites as well as lesser-known works that deserve to be seen and heard.

Yet with every generation comes new opportunity. General Director Christopher Hahn's tenure is one that will be remembered for having upheld this tradition while simultaneously moving the company into the 21st century.

Over the past 20 years, Christopher has built a legacy of programming that has showcased some of the most interesting compositional talent, redefined the art form for new audiences, and presented operas that inspire, challenge, and spark conversation.

Join Us

We invite you to be a founding member of the Pittsburgh Opera New Music Fund, ensuring a future for groundbreaking opera productions in our city and celebrating the vision of Christopher Hahn. By making a lead gift, you join others who have made philanthropic investments in the mission of Pittsburgh Opera’s diverse programming.

We seek to raise a total of $5 million for the New Music Fund. The Fund will be managed within the organization’s Board Reserve Fund, a donor designated fund for long term support of the Opera. Revenue will be directed towards the identification and presentation of contemporary works that deserve to be seen, world premieres that expand the boundaries of the art form, and unique performance opportunities for Pittsburgh Opera’s Resident Artist Program. Together, we honor Christopher Hahn’s legacy and continue to position the company as an industry leader into the future.
