When you're starting an opera company, it's a good idea to bring in advisors who know what they're talking—and singing—about. Opera Roanoke did exactly that when they enlisted Metropolitan Opera stars Eleanor Steber and Irene Dalis as mentors in the company's first years. With their guidance, the group gained greater artistic acclaim, and soon began staging renowned works including La Boheme, Madame Butterfly, and Beethoven's Fidelio. Today, the opera continues to produce stirring masterworks featuring acclaimed performers, lavish sets, and remarkably tuneful conversations.

Ask those who work at The Master's Inn, and they'll tell you: you can connect with the divine inside the walls of a church, but you might experience an even more meaningful connection beneath the stars and sun. That's why the retreat offers camping and outdoor recreation for Christians of all ages. Bonfires, trail rides, ropes courses, a zip line, and a lake for canoeing occupy the Inn's 300 acres, along with buildings and meeting facilities.
Dedicated to the conservation and enhancement of the Greensboro community, Greensboro Beautiful's volunteers put their green thumbs to good use. The volunteers at the nonprofit have planted trees during NeighborWoods Tree Plantings and developed four free-to-the-public community gardens supported by Greensboro Beautiful. These gardens draw in visitors throughout the year with their expansive colorful plots, as seen in the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, and elevated boardwalks winding through wetlands, as seen in the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park. The Greensboro Arboretum offers 17 acres hosting 10 woody plant collections, display gardens, and structural features. The Gateway Gardens accents the entrance to the City of Greensboro and features colorful, playful accents that make the park family-friendly. In addition to adding greenery to neighborhoods to enhance their beauty, the volunteers clean up trash and abandoned pog discs littering the area.
