Background Information

NYC Opera is the starting place for many upcoming singers mainly at the age of 30 and up. NYC Opera is a very prominent and well known organization.

Summary of Internship

I am in the education department. In this department, I help expose elementary through high school students to opera. I attend meetings proposing new ideas to help keep students interested in the arts (particularly opera). My permanent project is to find ways and facts to educate students about the particular opera and the world of opera in general.
