San Luis Obispo Opera Lovers Meet (OLM) was founded in 1994 by Yvonne Edmisten.

OLM normally meets at 10:00 a.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Annual Membership fee of $20 entitles you to attend all 12 sessions (see Calendar for details).

Each meeting features a speaker who provides background on upcoming local events. For example, Brian Alhadef, Artistic Director of our local Opera San Luis Obispo, gives talks on opera productions including information about the composer and artists as well as a synopsis of the specific opera along with musical selections. A complete schedule is posted in the OLM Calendar.

The OLM library contains complete opera CDs for members’ education and enjoyment. They are available at the monthly meetings for members to borrow. Our meetings provide a wonderful opportunity for you to socialize with your fellow opera lovers.

This website is dedicated by the Guli Institute to the memory of Viola Andreini and Yvonne Edmisten.
