While Opus Taylor plays many “paid” shows throughout the year, we feel that using our talents simply for financial gain would not be fulfilling our obligations as musicians and inhabitants of the planet. For that reason, we also do many benefit shows for causes that we feel are deserving of our support. We feel honored to be able to help our community in this very special way.






Helping the girls....

Opus Taylor was honored to perform at Yoga En La Casa, a fundraiser to raise much needed financial assistance for Casa Hogar, a girls orphanage in Barinas, Venezuela. Casa Hogar is home to approximately 40 girls ages 4-12 who either don't have parents or their parents can't take care of them or won't take care of them. The orphanage is run by religious sisters who struggle to meet even the most basic needs of these abandoned girls.
