Florida Grand Opera (FGO) continues to solidify its commitment to education and the community by partnering with the Miami-Dade County and Broward County Public Library Systems to offer a FREE literacy program running through the 2012-2013 season.
The “Read Along, Sing a Song” program is designed for elementary school aged children, walking them through a pre-selected story and incorporating elements from different artistic disciplines found within opera. As the children read, they may be instructed to pick up an instrument, follow a dance or sing to a melody during a high point of the story, making reading even more engaging and fun.
Catering to underserved communities, the program is offered at no cost. To maximize the learning experience, sessions are limited to 25 children each. Reservations can be made in advance by contacting FGO Education Manager, Cerise Sutton, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 305-854-1643 ext. 1100.
