Singing Telegram Request

The Atlanta Opera’s Singing Telegram program was developed to create connections with members of our community who are lonely, at-risk, or just in need of human interaction during the challenging time of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are two options for those who wish to send a telegram to a friend or family member:

Singing Telegram Request Form

To send a singing telegram to a friend or family member, please fill out the request form below, including your personalized message and your song choice from our telegram library. Once we have received your request, we’ll send an email to your friend or family member including your message as text, and a link to the song.

While there is no cost for singing telegrams, once you submit your form, you will be offered the opportunity to make a donation to help support The Atlanta Opera. We hope you’ll consider giving, if you can. Singing telegrams take 2 business days to complete.
