What we're about
AmiciHGOGuild is the Meet Up group for Amici, the social group of the Houston Grand Opera Guild, the volnteer support group for the Houston Grand Opera.
AmiciHGOGuild is the group for eating, drinking and being merry, with interesting and intelligent friends. We believe in good times with fans of opera in the Houston area: going interesting places, including theater and movies; going out to eat and out to hear music of lots of types; a good companionship with intelligent conversation. We will have a place at every performance of the Houston Grand Opera, to meet and talk and socialize during intermissions. We will be going to sports events and automobile shows - and to Houston Grand Opera and other opera performances in Houston. There is more to our world than most people ever imagine.
This is the group for you if you are a member of the Houston Grand Opera Guild, an HGO donor, a subscriber toHouston Grand Opera, anyone who sometimes goes to Houston Grand Opera performances, anyone who sings in a choir or just in the shower, and anyone who wants to come along. If you like the company of friendly, intelligent peoplewho like to go out and have fun, c'mon with us!
We believe in cakes and ale - and we do hear the chimes at midnight, the Gypsy dances, the celebrations of victory, and the duets of love - and the laughs of Russian prince's parties and parlormaids in disguise, and young love of the Bohemian life, lived and remembered.
Amici itself has no dues or other charges. Our meet-ups may occur at places that charge, but it's all Dutch treat. We hope you will want to join the Houston Grand Opera Guild, which supports the Houston Grand Opera, including many opera outreach events in the community.

You may even be able to meet the stars of the opera world.! And, of course, you will want to attend [erformances of the Houston Grand Opera.
