Starting in September 2019, Little Opera at Grace brings kids in K-8th grade to Grace Cathedral after school to WRITE, COMPOSE, ACT, SING, DESIGN, & PERFORM their very own mini-operas. With the help of professional teaching artists, students will work from September to May on this ambitious project that challenges their imaginations.
What families are saying:
“From start to finish, this program is top notch.”
“What I see as the greatest potential for this program is to help kids expand their view of themselves — to show our kids that they have it in them to do something really big, something they might not think they are capable of doing.”
— Hai Nhu
“If Gertrude had to spend the rest of her life behind bars or on a remote and hostile planet, she would be happy provided there was Little Opera at least twice a week. We would miss her, though.”
“If you look through the clouds of Little Opera, you actually see happiness, joy, and friendship.”
— Eleanor, 1st Grade
