Lower School Students Enjoy Operatic Version of Jack and the Beanstalk
Students in first through fifth grades enjoyed a Virginia Opera production of Jack and the Beanstalk. Three vocalists and one pianist, young musicians from the company's Herndon Foundation Emerging Artists Program, gave a lively, amusing, and musically exciting performance. The human voice is an extraordinary instrument!
Cecelia Schieve, The VA Opera's Director of Outreach and Education, introduced the concept of opera to the students and noted that the performance was a gift from two Norfolk Academy parents.
