The Grand Gala
The Grand Gala is a major fundraiser for the The Grand Opera and their community engagement programs. This year, everyone will gather at Copeland Hall at 8pm. There will be food, drink and entertainment spread throughout the venue. In years passed, the entertainment has been top notch. Many performers graced the stage including Michael Mcdonald, Patti Labelle, Blood Sweat and Tears and so much more. This year will be no different.

Goldsberry is a multi-hyphenate actress and singer who has delivered award winning performances both on Broadway and on the
screen. She is perhaps best known for her role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical phenomenon HAMILTON, which has become a cultural
touchstone for the ages. Renée’s performance earned her a Tony Award, Grammy Award, Drama Desk Award, and a Lucille Lortel Award. In July
2021, she was nominated for an Emmy Award for the Disney+ film adaptation.
The Grand Community Programs
