On Wednesday, April 20, the Opera Iowa Troupe came to West Elementary! OPERA Iowa has been visiting schools for the last 35 years, integrating curriculum-based workshops and entertaining, professional performances in the classroom. This hands-on experience let our elementary students take an inside look at a professional musical performance and learn vocabulary, history, and concepts from the state’s most expansive program in arts education, Des Moines Metro Opera. The group hosted curriculum-based workshops for our second graders and also put on two opera performances titled Rusalka: The Littlest Mermaid.
The performances were paid for by The Pathway to Culture Grant and The West PTA. Thank you for your donation and for your continued support of North Polk CSD!
