Scott Wright, General Director, of the Mobile Opera was pivotal in the series creation and continuation. The Sounds Like Alabama series and free public admission was made possible by a grant from The Community Foundation of South Alabama Clyde C. Snyder Fund.
Sounds Like Alabama, now in its second year, has hosted some of Alabama and the country’s most talented musicians. Mr. Wright advised us that funding has always been a problem in the performing arts community. “Therefore”, remarked Wright, “the grant makes the series possible and serves to educate the public about the need to support the fine arts community”. Mr. Wright also confided that the series has “been a real community builder and it opens people’s eyes to how much talent we have in Alabama”.
The Mobile Opera has been a part of the South Alabama community since its inception in 1945 and The Community Foundation is proud to be a partner in the community building efforts of this fine institution. We look forward to the monthly recitals and continue to support and partner with the organizations and people who become threads who weave the fabric of a stronger community.
