“The voice of a particular people is often expressed through their folk music. The stories of heroes, of heartaches, of home and hearth, and other realities of life provide children with a common heritage of song through which they may approach life with joy and a sense of the brotherhood of man.”
Professional folk musician June Crosby will teach intermediate and beginning students of violin/fiddle, cello, guitar, and ukulele how to play and sing the various folk music traditions of America in a friendly and inspiring environment.

OPERA BY CHILDREN & ODYSSEY OF THE MIND
Wednesdays, Starting 9/5/18, 2:15 PM-3:30 PM, ages 8-12, $90-140/child/year, 18 weeks
Mentor: Ann Matthews, Utah Festival Opera Professionals
Using the incredible professional resources available through the Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theater, children come together to create their own opera! They’ll have the chance to learn to persevere through the writing process, persist as they work together to reach a goal, produce an authentic work of art, and perform to demonstrate their talents, skills and achievement. Over the course of the year, children will develop a storyline, write a libretto, write and record a score (enabled by the assistance of a professional composer), create scenery, costumes, and blocking, rehearse the production and finally perform short opera, entirely of their own creation.
The weekly process will be facilitated by Ann Matthews, an experienced educator who has been through this program before with her own classroom of students. Professional assistants from Utah Festival Opera will visit to assist production during key times.
As part of the weekly experience, we will be using the creative problem-solving resources provided by Odyssey of the Mind to encourage teamwork, hone critical thinking skills, and get creative juices flowing! Those interested in forming competitive teams for Odyssey of the Mind in Spring 2019 will be given encouragement and resources to do so.
(Ann is a graphic designer, writer, seamstress, and certified teacher who loves podcasts and books that make her think and expand her views of the world.)
