Peru school to host Opera for the Young

NT Staff

Opera for the Young, a professional touring group, will present “The Barber of Seville” at 1:30 p.m. March 25 at Washington School in Peru. A chorus of 16 fourth-graders from the school will perform onstage with the professional singers.

During the month of March, students are studying opera and improvising their own versions of simple scenes in music class. All students will have the opportunity to sing along with parts of the opera.

Opera for the Young presents 200 performances annually, reaching 80,000 children each school year. This special performance is funded by the Peru P.T.C. Additional financial assistance was received in the preceding school year from the Illinois Valley Fine Arts Trust. More information is available at or by contacting Washington School’s music teacher, Mrs. Kelsey.
