Opera Camp: How to Create an Opera
July 30 – August 3, 2018 | 9:30am – 4:30pm
VOICES Boston and Boston Lyric Opera are offering Opera Camp to singers entering 3rd-6th grade in the 2018-2019 school year.
Learn the process of creating an opera and try each step along the way! In the spirit of Boston Lyric Opera’s commitment to new works and BLO Education’s use of the Music! Words! Opera! curriculum, we want to hear youth voices. Through this hands-on opera day camp, facilitated and coached by experienced educators, youth will create an original opera “pitch” to present to BLO staff, including a sample of original music, story, libretto, staging and design concepts. Join us as we cultivate the next generation of opera!
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
