In-School Opera Program

In-School Opera Program – March 2017

The Opera Society is very fortunate to be able to bring In-school Opera to elementary school children in Broward County by collaborating with the Young Patronesses of the Opera (YPO). The In-School Opera program endeavors to cultivate the love of opera and promote opera education by bringing age-appropriate programs to local schools. Our goal is to bring opera to as many elementary students as possible, so that we may introduce opera to children at an early age. Each year a professional children’s opera is performed at schools in Miami-Dade and Broward at NO COST to the schools. This year’s opera is Cinderella by Seymour Barab.

The Opera Society raises funds to support the expansion of the Miami based In-school Opera program to at least five elementary schools in Broward County annually. Our goal is to raise $5,000 which is needed to offer 10 performances at 5 elementary schools in Broward County. YPO provides the program to us at 50% of the actual production cost.
