Mission and Purpose of NOOL (Northern Ohio Opera League)

To Support Opera in Northern Ohio

Communities need active arts and sports programs to enhance the overall living environment. NOOL is dedicated in helping Opera through its own programs, events and benefits. We use local talent to help them remain active in their own art form. Help us help our community learn and enjoy this high art form. You can support the effort with ads or donations but it is far more fun attending our programs to enjoy quality music, meeting new people and yes maybe even becoming active by joining with our members putting the programs together and getting the satisfaction of keeping alive the Arts in Cleveland. Bravo, Brava!
