These interactive music assemblies, with renowned local artists, allow children of all ages to experience a new music genre and provide a fun and educational environment to improve their cultural literacy. All assemblies will end with a Q & A. Total running time is 50 minutes.

This year we will present The Daughter of the Regiment. This adapted student-friendly version consist of 3 professional opera singers and 1 pianist. We incorporate between 8 to 10 students on stage to be part of the ensemble or chorus with lines and singing opportunities. Students will need to rehearse with the professionals one hour before showtime; All sets, costumes, and props are provided.

*Thanks to the generosity of the Shortino Foundation and the San Jose Opera Guild, there will be special rates.
