Opera Fort Collins invites you to take advantage of a unique and FREE educational opportunity for public, charter and private school students.
Our Outreach Programs brings opera performances into northern Colorado schools via two programs:
This fun and participatory 30-minute introduction to opera features the live performance of an original mini-opera. Through it, students will learn about arias, duets and ensembles.
A 30-50 minute concert of operatic arias and duets, with explanation of each piece. The performance is followed by a short question/answer period.
Both programs are performed by the talented OFC Apprentice Artists, each of whom is currently enrolled in the Master of Music degree programs at Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado. These emerging professional singers will introduce your students to one of the world’s most demanding art forms (think Olympics for the voice!).
A piano or an electric keyboard is needed. OFC can customize your program.
These programs are offered at no charge. School concerts are subsidized by the Educational Outreach Program of Opera Fort Collins.
A limited number of performances will be offered. To book a program at your school for an individual class or general assembly, please contact me at your earliest convenience. Include more than one date/time, as that will give us more opportunity to schedule. I look forward to scheduling an educational concert for you in the near future!
