The Baton Rouge Opera Guild was organized January 7th, 1948, and the Charter was signed May 26th, 1948. The reasons for forming the Guild were to promote the study of and to listen to opera music, to aid and assist in any manner of the development of opera and any other field of music and dramatic art.
