The Opera Singer Network on Facebook

A few days ago, I got invited to The Opera Singer Network Facebook group. I've seen a lot of Facebook groups dedicated to all things operatic, but this one (created by Steven Hall in Dallas/Fort Worth) looks like it might become a winner. Here are some of the features of this recently formed group:
  • member website url's posted
  • spotlight member features
  • audition notices submitted by a number of members
  • links to opera resources, including a few great sites I've never seen before
  • opera company links
  • news features
  • a very active and informative wall
  • a newsletter of recent group activity sent via Facebook messaging
I'm not generally a fan of Facebook groups, which tend to have an initial flurry of activity, peter out, and then become completely stagnant. However, this one looks like it might just become an indispensable source of up-to-the-minute operatic information and discussion.
