David Ryan of Opera NOVA in Arlington is one of five nationwide recipients of a certificate of excellence award from Opera Volunteers International to be presented June 20-23 at its annual convention.
When Ryan moved to the Washington Metropolitan area, he was naturally attracted to the Washington National Opera. David Ryan has volunteered with Opera NOVA for 12 years, and is now the the treasurer and administrator of Opera NOVA. President Miriam Miller says, “he has given countless volunteer hours clocking in more than 30 hours most weeks.”
Opera NOVA seeks to provide audiences with the chance to enjoy opera performances locally, to create performance opportunities for aspiring artists in the community, and to produce inspiring programs for youth and seniors.
