Surely we all agree that Suzy’s post concerning introducing youngsters to opera is welcome. I for one speak frequently about my concern that we must do much more if we do not want to experience the demise of opera and classical music (classical art, literature, and all the rest as well…i.e. THE ARTS). A heart-warming post indeed. Judy and I recently attended a meeting of Opera Volunteers International in Miami. AND…a long session was devoted to teaching students in the Miami region to understand, appreciate, even write opera, such as Red Riding Hood. Excellent pedagogical approaches and devoted, consumately prepared teachers have resulted in most encouraging outcomes.
We Cheer You On!!
