Education

Children’s Chorus and Education:

One of Winter Opera’s main goals is to involve children in opera productions and give them hands-on experience with professional musicians. In Season Eleven local composer, Harold Blumenfeld’s Borgia Infami featured a children’s chorus, as did Season Four’s Cavalleria Rusticana, Season Five’s La Boheme and Season Six’s Tosca, Season Ten’s Carmen, and others!

 

As per part of our mission to preserve the opera art form for generations to come, Winter Opera is working to develop a children’s educational program we call Operatoons – a series of condensed operas with fun facts, notes, and teaching tools. Perfect for independent study, homeschooling, and classroom environments, Operatoons  is a fun, interactive way to learn about classical music and the many composers who bring the stories to life. Currently, we have coloring books available for purchase filled with images from our past performances, word searches, mazes, and more! Buy online or visit our office!
