Volunteer Speakers Welcome
The Opera Lyra Ottawa Guild needs opera "devotees" to join them as volunteer speakers.
Volunteer speakers would prepare and present Pre-Opera Chats, or speak at public events as needed. Volunteers must be comfortable speaking in public and have a love of opera. Although a musical background is not necessary, this is certainly an asset. For information, please contact Mary Frances Taylor at 613-730-8450.
