Eugene Opera In Schools

This fall, Eugene Opera pilots a new program that links arts education and social-emotional learning outcomes. Working in partnership with social work and family support resources at Thurston Middle School in Springfield, the project will revitalize a school garden as a place for performance, community, and sharing.

Drama and music workshops will take place after-school in late Fall and Winter, and a community sharing event will feature original student work in a garden reopening ceremony in Spring 2022.

In addition, students will be invited to attend opera rehearsals and performances during the season for an intimate look at the opera-making process.
