History :

The Jackson Opera Guild was organized in 1945, spearheaded by the efforts of Mignonne (Mrs. John T.) Caldwell with the enthusiastic support of a rapidly growing group of vocal and instrumental performers and supporters.  At the time of its organization, the Jackson Opera Guild was one of twelve organizations of its kind in the United States. Incorporated in 1947, the Jackson Opera Guild had as its aim to promote and encourage the enjoyment, study and appreciation of Opera; to help in the development of operatic talent; and to provide cultural enrichment for the public through operatic performances. Mississippi Opera is the eleventh oldest, continuously producing professional opera company in America.
