Are you between the ages of 9 and 17 years old and looking to sing, create and challenge yourself in a virtual experience this summer?
Join Opera Camp and find your voice. Everyone is welcome, no matter how much experience you have (or don't have). You just have to want to learn about opera. Opera Camp now takes place wherever you are.
Get ready to sing and create and challenge yourself. Opera Camp is an enriching two-week virtual program where you will rehearse and perform opera. It's an intense, but fun-filled experience, running from 9:00am to 12:30pm, Monday through Friday. Inspired by the stories of Los Angeles’ elders and our unique communities, students will produce individually recorded performances that will be combined into a piece they can keep and share with family and friends.
CONNECT WITH FRIENDS
Art has the power to connect us all and turn strangers into family. Create a virtual connection to people who love the arts as much as you do.
CONNECT WITH THE LOS ANGELES COMMUNITY
Opera is a story told with music. You will learn about the real-life story of Los Angeles and hear directly from people who lived the history. Working closely with your Drama Leader and Music Leader, you’ll develop a new piece that incorporates the music and history you study during camp. Imagine a musical quilt, full of hope and resilience, forming a bridge between communities and generations.
