About this Grantee

To connect learning to life experiences and integrate all content areas, Ms. McGinn, Ms. DiPietro, and Ms. Levine develop an opera program for their students. After forming their own opera production company, students apply for jobs, such as set designers and writers, and audition for parts in the production. Students then compose, produce, and perform in an original opera.
