Social Media and the Vancouver Opera

Remember when we blogged the opera?

Ling Chan of the Vancouver Opera and Capulet Communications have been doing a couple of sessions for business groups on blogger outreach and twitter. Vancouver Opera’s success and Capulet’s expertise are written up in the Victoria Times Colonist, and the story went out on the Canwest wires and has been picked up by the New Brunswick Telegraph Journal.

Hooray for Vancouver Opera, and congratulations to Capulet for being such superstars.

The opera’s blog is used to make it more accessible to people, educate them, increase awareness and make connections, Chan said. Other organizations have approached the opera about its social networking methods, which only started in spring of 2008.

Warmest regards,

Thanks for the linkage! We had no idea our little talk was going to turn into a T-C article.
