LEARNING AT HOME
In spring of 2020, our education team put together some at-home learning activities that add a little opera sparkle to arts education.
In response to the pandemic, Portland Opera has partnered with Portland Public Schools and Gresham-Barlow School District to create Opera Elements, a series of 3 virtual lesson plans and activities for students. Made up of both synchronous and asynchronous activities, these lesson plans focus on 3 main topics: the voice, the building blocks of opera, and composing.
Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the different voice types with the Portland Opera Resident Artists and Manager of Education and Community Engagement, Alexis Hamilton, create their own arias, and learn more about composing from Portland Opera’s Co-Artistic Advisor and Composer, Damien Geter.
