Emma H. Jackson
Opera in the Schools Program

 

 

Opera North, Inc. offers a unique and exciting operatic assembly program that will enthrall students for all ages.  Each year, the Emma H. Jackson Opera in the Schools Program introduces the wonders of opera to thousands of children in the Philadelphia area.  This interactive assembly program stimulates interest in performing arts, language and literature.

This unique opera program consists of three or more singers and an accompanist who perform operatic arias and engage students in the understanding and interpretation of these selections.  Students are encouraged to participate and interact with the performers during this dynamic, 50-minute assembly.  All musical selections are adapted to be age-appropriate.  The school must provide a tuned, functional piano.
