The final “PTA Arts Assembly” for this school year will be on June 3. The Seattle Opera’s “Opera Goes to School” program will perform a 40-minute opera about the issues of conservation and endangered species, brought to life by professional singers in a fully-staged performance featuring vivid scenery and beautiful costumes with piano accompaniment. A question-and-answer session with the performers will follow.
The schedule for June 3rd is as follows:
- Kindergarten – 2nd Grade at 9:45am
- 3rd – 5th Grade at 10:45am
Parents are welcome to join the assembly!
And here’s an amazing opportunity for students who like to sing: as part of “Opera Goes to School,” Lafayette 3rd through 5th grade students can perform with the professional singers at the assembly on June 3! A Seattle Opera choral teaching artist is coming to Lafayette to teach and rehearse interested students for ensemble numbers in the short opera. Students who want to sing will come to three rehearsals on Tuesday mornings May 13, 20, 27th from 8:25–9:25 a.m., and then perform together at the assembly under professional direction. There is no fee for participation. Rehearals will be in Ms. Scranton’s art room.
For questions, information, or to sign up please contact PTA Arts Assemblies Coordinator Laurie Utterback by May 7.
