Are you an opera fan?  Do you wish your family was a fan, too?

Well, there is nothing like starting them out early...your children, I mean, and Opera Grand Rapids is here to help.

Two new and exciting children's education programs are really going to warm up the Betty Van Andel Opera Center this winter, and, just in time for your little ones.

Opera Grand Rapids is holding afternoon early education classes, Sing With Me! The class explores music like language acquisition for babies birth to 3 with an adult.

For the older child, the opera company welcomes back The Children's Opera Studio, a Saturday morning program, where children ages 6 to 12 build an opera and perform for family and friends.

Registration is also now open for Opera Grand Rapids'
9th Annual Collegiate Vocal Competition.

You'll find all of the information on their web site at www.opergr.org.
