HEALTH for Youths goes to the opera!

Yesterday we kicked off our Metropolitan Opera season with students! We are part of the Access Opera program through the Metropolitan Opera Guild and had the total delight of seeing La Traviata. Fabulous! Additionally, at the end of the performance, there was a 15 minute Q&A on stage with Maestro Nezet-Seguin and the principal singers (Diana Damrau, Juan Diego Florez and Kelsey Quinn), hosted by Mary Jo Heath. They answered questions submitted by the students. Incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!! On another note, we want to thank the amazing Stephanie Izzo of the Met Guild. She’s a lovely person who is awesome at what she does. Also huge thanks to Erin Kawazu, one of our students, who never fails to help us organize these events. Finally, to our heart, our Met Access facilitator Harriet. The program links every school with a volunteer for the day and they explain the opera to students, answer only questions, make sure all is well. Harriet is exceptional at this. Harriet, simply put, we love you. Can’t imagine going to the opera without you. Next up, Otello on December 11th!!!! @metoperaguild @metopera
